base: Add MultiConfigParsed handler to deal with unstable build signatures
This uses the newly added MultiConfigParsed event to handle problems where checksums in multiconfig build were not fuctioning as expected. The issue arises around SIGGEN_EXCLUDE_SAFE_RECIPE_DEPS which contains entries like: * gcc-cross-${TARGET_ARCH}->virtual/${TARGET_PREFIX}libc-for-gcc * gcc-cross-${TARGET_ARCH}->linux-libc-headers These need to be expanded in the multiconfig data store but then placed into the shared main datastore used by the siggen code. The only other alternative would be a siggen instance for each multiconfig however that seemed even more complex and invasive. In real world usage, this issue would mean a qemux86 base config with other armv5 and armv7 configs (e.g. beaglebone and qemuarm) would try and build gcc-cross twice since dependencies normaly excluded (e.g. linux-libc-headers) would now be included. This breaks sstate reuse as well as breaking builds unless separate tmpdirs are used. This patch adds all the entries for each multiconfig. Whilst there may be duplicates, this shouldn't be an issue.
