Hi Saul, Darren and all,

This is actually v3 of the old patches("self-hosted-image: generate the
.hdddirect and .vmdk image files") I sent 1 month ago.
I'm sorry for sending this out so late, as I was pushed tightly on one other
task... :-(

The new recipe invokes self-hosted-image's
do_rootfs automatically. That is, is an
enhanced version of
If we only want to run the generated .ext3 image with "runqemu", we can
run "bitbake self-hosted-image"; if we also want to generated a .vmdk image,
we can run "bitbake self-hosted-directdisk-image".

Please comment. Thanks!
