devtool: finish: warn if moving recipe to unconfigured destination layer
If you run devtool finish to move a recipe created in the workspace by devtool add or devtool upgrade to a layer, and that layer is not currently included in bblayers.conf (perhaps unintentionally), then the recipe will no longer be visible to bitbake. In this scenario, show a warning so that the user isn't surprised by the recipe "going missing". Signed-off-by: Paul Eggleton <> Signed-off-by: Ross Burton <>
