bitbake.conf: add VOLATILE_LOG_DIR variable
The default value is "yes" which results in the /var/log being a link pointing to /var/volatile/log which is on tmpfs. Setting valid boolean false value ('no', 'n', 'false', 'f', '0') would make /var/log to be a directory on persistent storage. [YOCTO #6132] Signed-off-by: Chen Qi <Qi.Chen@windriver.com>
