bitbake: user-manual-metadata.xml: Added varflag for vardepvalueexclude.
Fixes [YOCTO #5897] Added several new varflags to the existing list in the "Variable Flags" section. The key one being the "vardepvalueexclude" flag.

1063 Several varflags are useful for controlling how signatures are
1064 calculated for variables.
1065 For more information on this process, see the

1070 Specifies a space-separated list of additional
1071 variables to add to a variable's dependencies
1072 for the purposes of calculating its signature.
1073 Adding variables to this list is useful, for example, when
1074 a function refers to a variable in a manner that
1075 does not allow BitBake to automatically determine
1076 that the variable is referred to.

1079 If set, instructs BitBake to ignore the actual
1080 value of the variable and instead use the specified
1081 value when calculating the variable's signature.
