ref-manual: update/fix text for SDK_VERSION
DISTRO_VERSION snapshot versions use METADATA_REVISION not DATE in hardknott and thus the default for SDK_VERSION has been updated, so update it here as well. Additionally, fix the text so it makes sense. (From yocto-docs rev: 7b0c4229591d6325384800137e9242c2b030e118) Signed-off-by: Paul Eggleton <> Signed-off-by: Richard Purdie <>
