recipetool: add setvar subcommand
Add a recipetool subcommand "setvar" to set a variable in a file. This uses our existing logic such that it doesn't matter if the variable is already set in the recipe, if it's set in the recipe or some inc file, and if the variable is not currently set that the line setting the variable gets inserted in the right place in the file. Implements [YOCTO #7676]. (From OE-Core rev: 7c33ef77fa165182d24f0a9ae769e9e630e6bd47) Signed-off-by: Paul Eggleton <> Signed-off-by: Ross Burton <> Signed-off-by: Richard Purdie <>
