classes/externalsrc: delete symlinks at start of do_buildclean
To help users find the work and log directories (especially within the eSDK) we create symlinks to these from the source tree. However during do_buildclean we call "make clean", and some project Makefiles which delete something like "*/*/lib" which will match files underneath the oe-workdir symlink and fail. do_buildclean is called from do_clean which is in turn called by devtool reset by default, and thus devtool reset is blocked. An example of a recipe where this is visible is the openssl-qat recipe in meta-intel. In order to fix this, delete the symlinks at the start of do_buildclean since we shouldn't need them at that point anyway, and thus make clean won't be able to trip over them. Fixes [YOCTO #11036].
