image.bbclass: Separate out image generation into a new task, do_image
I've heard complaints from people trying to create more interesting image types about how hard it is to understand the rootfs/image generation code and that its a pain to develop/test/debug. Having looked at it myself, the internal construction of shell functions which then gets passed into a multiprocessing pool is rather convoluted and it places rather odd constraints on when variables are expanded. Its therefore no wonder people find it confusing/complex. This patch starts the process of splitting this up by separating out image generation from the do_rootfs task into a new do_image task.
