kernel.bbclass: fix hardlink test
The commit [kernel.bbclass: test for hardlinks before installing] doesn't work on all build machines without a space between the ! and the test for hardlink equivalance. The build continues, while the test fails and no copy is made into the sysroot. Eventually tasks like build_hdimg will fail with the missing kernel with the root cause being less than obvious.
