sstate.bbclass: ignore the tar failure.
sstate_package creates hardlink from sysroot to SSTATE_BUILDDIR, and sstate_create_package stores SSTATE_BUILDDIR into a archive file by tar, these two task can be run simultaneously for different packages, and make a hardlink for a file will lead to the change of the links number of file, and if tar is reading this file, it will fail with exit code 1, and report "file changed as we read it": DEBUG: Executing shell function sstate_create_package tar: x86_64-linux/usr/share/aclocal/xorg-macros.m4: file changed as we read it 4b3e353a5[sstate.bbclass: fix parallel building issue] tries to use the tar parameter --ignore-failed-read to fix, but it does not work, and tar parameter --warning=no-file-changed can close the warning, but can not change the exit code. so close shell immediate exit, only fail if tar returns not 1 and 0.
