lib/oe/package_manager: support exclusion from complementary glob process by regex
Sometimes you do not want certain packages to be installed when installing complementary packages, e.g. when using dev-pkgs in IMAGE_FEATURES you may not want to install all packages from a particular multilib. This introduces a new PACKAGE_EXCLUDE_COMPLEMENTARY variable to allow specifying regexes to match packages to exclude. Signed-off-by: Paul Eggleton <> Signed-off-by: Richard Purdie <>
