package: Fix race between do_package and do_packagedata
do_package has PKGDESTWORK as a cleandir and do_packagedata has it as an sstate-input dir. This means do_package wipes out the directory at both do_package and do_package_setscene. do_package_setscene and do_packagedata_setscene can run in parallel when installing from sstate which means they can wipe out parts of each other leading to interesting build failures. We therefore have to add in a hardlink copy so that the directories can work independently of each other. (From OE-Core rev: 692b2046bb60806ee6bbde6ba15bd1637b00efb1) Signed-off-by: Richard Purdie <>
