toolchain-shar-template.sh: fix installation of SDKChenQi/SDK-installation
Previously, the installation of our SDK is not consistent. For example, there's a user with user name 'test' and group name 'test', and the user has sudo privilege. First, the user tries to install the SDK to his own home directory /home/test, and the SDK files are installed with 'test' as their owner. Then, the user tries to install the SDK to /opt/ directory which is owned by root, and the SDK files are installed with 'root' as their owner. We can see from the above example the same SDK would result in different installation results only because the installation directories are different. In fact, in the second use case above, the user has to use the `sudo' command every time whenever he/she wants to perform some action with the SDK. This patch fixes the above problems by installing the SDK with the current user as the owner of the installed files. Signed-off-by: Chen Qi <Qi.Chen@windriver.com>
