kernel-yocto.bbclass: ensure repatching when HEAD is checked out
In some cases it is seen that kernel_checkout and validate_branches are run again in simultaneous builds. During do_patch the kgit-s2q mechanism looks for a sentinel file inside the .git directory, finds a fence post and starts picking up patches after that. This can create trouble as validate_branches checks out the HEAD of the branch and so the patches should be reapplied rather than skipped due to finding of the fence post. We can call kgit-s2q --clean to remove the sentinel file when the branches are checked out.
