This series of patches fixed the bug #892. Currently, the site config 
files used in the cross compiling environment generated by meta-toolchain 
partly come from SITECONFIG_SYSROOT_CACHE, where each package will put 
their own site config cache file during their populate-sysroot task.

However, there is no way to guarantee the meta-toolchain to collect these 
site config cache files after all other packages have finished their 
populate-sysroot tasks. Since we now encourage users to use the same rootfs 
for both running and cross-compiling, by populating the site config files'
content into rootfs and having the CONFIG_SITE pointing to the rootfs, we 
can gurantee the cross compiling environment not missing any site config 
cache files' content.

The site config files will only be popualted into the image if "dev-pkgs" 
is in the "IMAGE_FEATURES", so only those -dev/-sdk images will have site 
config files.
