[OpenWrt-Devel] IGNORE_PACKAGES in scan.mk break out-of-tree kernel module builds

Hi Felix,

I have discovered that your recent patch for scan.mk to avoid 
reconfiguration of base kernel modules results in failure (xxx is 
messing dependency on <some_base_kmod>.ko) for at least cryptodev-linux 
(kmod-cryptdev) and kmod-fs-exfat.

However, a patch I am working on that is aimed at the same goal, only 
for any package previously built rather than just kernel, appears to 
solve the issue.

Basically what I do is record the fact a package was previously compiled 
during the base build and include that record in a directory of the SDK. 
  Then by modifying metadata.pl I skip the KConfig section generation 
but *not* the .packageinfo generation.

The problem is that without .packageinfo, important information about 
dependencies is missing.
