documentation/poky-ref-manual/usingpoky.xml: [BUGID# 929] - Note added warning about switching up GPL versions
In chapter 2 where we talk about building images I added a new note indicating that the user should not switch around using different GPL versions when trying to rebuild an image as it can cause dependency failures.

+ <note>
+ When building an image using GPL components you need to maintain your original
+ settings and not switch back and forth applying different versions of the GNU
+ Public License. If you rebuild using different versions of GPL you can get
+ dependency errors due to some components not being rebuilt.
