bitbake: support $BITBAKE_UI environment
Patch adds support for a $BITBAKE_UI environment variable which allows to configure the preferred user interface. Although an '-u' option (which will override the environment variable) exists already, it was required to specify this option on every invocation of bitbake. Because user interface is instanciated very early in the program it is not possible to use bitbake.conf for setting up a default. An environment variable (which acts in a similar category like $PAGER or $EDITOR) is a simple way for configuring the default.
