packagedata: Add error message if multiple recipes try to write the same package
If multiple recipes try and write the same package it resulted in a rather confusing traceback and unintuitive error. This patch prints a human readable error instead. [YOCTO #3645] (From OE-Core rev: 6f817779af77fdb0b861297f0f43c4c6607ce6f0) Signed-off-by: Richard Purdie <>
