linux-yocto-custom: clarify bbappend versus copy in comments
The kernel development manual recommends making a copy of linux-yocto-custom, while the comments in the recipe talk about bbappends. To synchronize the two, we remove the bbappend references from the recipe and instead indicate that a copy should be updated. [YOCTO: #6925] (From OE-Core rev: 121498714b03339d2e5090c2a8fe0618bbaa8610) Signed-off-by: Bruce Ashfield <bruce.ashfield@windriver.com> Signed-off-by: Richard Purdie <richard.purdie@linuxfoundation.org>
