skeleton: clarify linux-yocto-custom workflow
It was pointed out that the kernel development documentation recommends making a copy of linux-yocto-custom, while the comments in the recipe itself suggest a bbappend. To keep things consistent between these two sources, we update the comment in the recipe itself to also recommend a copy (and rename).
