base-files/profile: change EDITOR to not be busybox specific
Setting "EDITOR=/bin/vi" breaks on non-busybox systems, as vim will populate /usr/bin/vi instead, and you get stuff like: op3:~/poky/meta-builder$ git commit -s error: cannot run /bin/vi: No such file or directory error: unable to start editor '/bin/vi' Please supply the message using either -m or -F option. op3:~/poky/meta-builder$ which vi /usr/bin/vi op3:~/poky/meta-builder$ Since we've already specified a proper path above in the profile, we've no need to call out where in the path vi lives, and hence this will work with busybox and a full vim install w/o busybox.
