This patch series started with as main goal to fix the performance degradation
found when testing gRPC in combination with BR2_ENABLE_DEBUG.

Its implementation strives to settle a discussion that has happened several
times, regarding the CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE that Buildroot should set, by not forcing
anything upon the user but allowing the choice.

Additionally, it cleans up some related changes done in specific packages.

After this series, there are still packages that set CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE
explicitly, but the associated comments indicate that they are needed to avoid
build failures, so they are not touched.

v2: fix sysrepo after comment by Jan Kundrát (thanks!)
- new patch setting -g0 (Arnout)
- don't set -DNDEBUG globally anymore, and drop related libjson change
- flare-engine, supertux: retain disabling of -pg option (Arnout)
- sysrepo: new patch for host-sysrepo, disable tests for target (Arnout)
- update several packages to use BR2_ENABLE_RUNTIME_DEBUG instead of
- drop uclibc patch (Arnout)
- reintroduce global -DNDEBUG
- sofia-sip: fix then remove the handling of NDEBUG
- zmqpp: change buildtype to 'buildroot' in case of BR2_ENABLE_RUNTIME_DEBUG

Thomas De Schampheleire (16):
  core: introduce BR2_ENABLE_RUNTIME_DEBUG
  core: enable 'NDEBUG' unless BR2_ENABLE_RUNTIME_DEBUG is set
  package/pkg-cmake.mk: determine CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE depending on
  package/flare-engine: disable effect of CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE
  package/sysrepo: use default CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE for host package
  package/sysrepo: remove explicit setting of CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE
  package/boost: use BR2_ENABLE_RUNTIME_DEBUG iso BR2_ENABLE_DEBUG
  package/oracle-mysql: use BR2_ENABLE_RUNTIME_DEBUG iso
  package/ripgrep: use BR2_ENABLE_RUNTIME_DEBUG iso BR2_ENABLE_DEBUG
  package/sofia-sip: correct passing of '--enable-ndebug'
  package/sofia-sip: don't set 'NDEBUG' explicitly
  package/zmqpp: don't set CONFIG=debug
  package/zmqpp: use BR2_ENABLE_RUNTIME_DEBUG iso BR2_ENABLE_DEBUG
  package/pkg-meson.mk: determine 'buildtype' based on
  utils/genrandconfig: also test BR2_ENABLE_RUNTIME_DEBUG
