kernel-yocto: remove do_shared_workdir from SRCTREECOVEREDTASKS
Various recipes depend on the kernel's do_shared_workdir task, a quick grep suggests all external kernel modules (via module.bbclass), but also perf, and potentially any additional headers as outlined in are affected. Having do_shared_workdir in SRCTREECOVEREDTASKS means this task is removed when externalsrc is enabled, making all those recipes fail as the task they depend on, virtual/kernel:do_shared_workdir, doesn't exist. Remove do_shared_workdir from SRCTREECOVEREDTASKS so that all those recipes work even if externalsrc is activated. According to the comment in here, the reason for do_shared_workdir to be removed as a task is because it modifies the source tree, but that doesn't seem to be case.
