bitbake: bitbake: add -C option to invalidate a task and rebuild the target
This new command line option forces the specified task and all dependent tasks up to the default task to re-run. This means that the following single step: bitbake -C compile somerecipe is equivalent to the following two steps (with the recent change to -f): bitbake -c compile -f somerecipe bitbake somerecipe Note that to work this option needs full hashing enabled (i.e. BB_SIGNATURE_HANDLER must be set to a signature handler that inherits from BasicHash). If this is not the case, -C effectively does nothing. Based on a previous implementation of this option by Jason Wessel <jason.wessel@windriver.com>. Implements [YOCTO #2615].
