bitbake: bitbake-user-manual: Updated discussion about using "inherit"
Fixes [YOCTO #9343] I updated the inherit directive section to note that you can inherit multiple classes using a single line.

<filename>INHERIT</filename> to inherit a class effectively
inherits the class globally (i.e. for all recipes).
</note>
+ If you want to use the directive to inherit
+ multiple classes, you can provide them on the same line in the
+ <filename>local.conf</filename> file.
+ Use spaces to separate the classes.
+ The following example shows how to inherit both the
+ <filename>autotools</filename> and <filename>pkgconfig</filename>
+ classes:
+ <literallayout class='monospaced'>
+ inherit autotools pkgconfig
+ </literallayout>
