classes/populate_sdk_ext: add some pre-install checks
Check a number of things as early as possible in the eSDK installer script so that the user gets an error up front rather than waiting for the build system to be extracted and then have the error produced: * Check for missing utilities specified in SANITY_REQUIRED_UTILITIES (along with gcc and g++), taking into account that some of these are satisfied by buildtools which ships as part of the SDK. We use the newly added capability to list an SDK's contents to allow us to see exactly which binaries are inside the buildtools installer. * Check that Python is available (since the buildtools installer's relocate script is written in Python). * Check that locale value set by the script is actually available * Check that the install path is not on NFS This does duplicate some of the checks in sanity.bbclass but it's difficult to avoid that given that here they have to be written in shell and there they are written in Python, as well as the fact that we only need to run some of the checks here and not all (i.e. the ones that relate to the host system or install path, and not those that check the configuration or metadata). Given those issues and the fact that the amount of code is fairly small I elected to just re-implement the checks here. Fixes [YOCTO #8657].
