useradd.bbclass: Ensure pseudo can load in the pseudo unloaded case
In the do_populate_sysroot_setscene case, pseudo has been unloaded and we need to reload it. This code change ensures all the pseudo options are specified so pseudo loads correctly. It also improves some of the comments so all the different contexts are listed.
