Hello,

This is a P2 feature for Yocto 1.2. It adds two new QA tests to check
files in base_bindir, base_sbindir, and base_libdir for references to
files under exec_prefix (e.g, dynamic linking for binaries and
references to exec_prefix in scripts).

The reason for these tests is that exec_prefix (typically /usr) can
be kept on a separate partition that may be mounted late in the boot
process, or may not be mounted at all during system recovery
operations.

It was my original goal to make the dynamic linking test a QA error
upon failure, but it turned out the amount of recipe work needed was
much larger than I expected. So for the time being they have been
changed to generate QA warmings.

The libraries I've moved to base_libdir in this pull request should
take care of all binaries in /bin and /sbin for packages we include
in core-image-minimal and -sato. 

I would like to ask recipe maintainers to look for these QA warnings
and fix them ASAP, as I believe we'll be changing this to a QA error
before the release of 1.2. 

Scott
