libsm: remove dependency on e2fsprogs
This patch is to solve the following circular dependency problem. systemd -> dbus -> libsm -> e2fsprogs -> util-linux -> systemd libsm doesn't have any dependency on e2fsprogs. It might be some dependency on util-linux's libuuid, controlled by configure options. So e2fsprogs should be removed from the DEPENDS variable. Ideally, we should add a PACKAGECONFIG for 'libuuid' for libsm. However, if libsm depends on util-linux, we would have the circular dependency described above. That's why this patch explicitly set '--without-libuuid' in EXTRA_OECONF. libsm would still be working well because it would fall back to an internal algorithm to do the uuid stuff.
