[OpenWrt-Devel] [PATCH v3] base-files: evaluate uci-defaults on run-time installations

Packages may install scripts into /etc/uci-defaults to be executed once
after installation, usually at the first boot of the target. This works
fine if the package was installed onto the rootfs during build or using
the ImageBuilder.
If the package is installed using opkg during run-time uci-defaults
were applied only after a reboot of the device. Avoid the need to
reboot by evaluating the package's uci-defaults in default-postinst.

v2: remove superflus expansions of always-empty variable
v3: fix typo in patch description, sorry for the noise...
