bitbake: tinfoil: ensure PATH includes bitbake's bin directory
The runqueue expects to be able to run 'bitbake-worker' from PATH, but for example in the OE extensible SDK, tinfoil is used within devtool where this isn't the case (we're not exposing bitbake to the user, thus bitbake's bin directory isn't in PATH). This fixes devtool modify usage within the extensible SDK which has apparently been broken since the tinfoil2 changes went in. Fixes [YOCTO #11034].
