meta-intel: Change build instructions in README to use BSP tarball
Change the build instructions to use BSP tarballs instead of git clones. The git clone info remains as a mentioned alternative. The original bug report was for Sugar Bay, but the others had the same problem - this fixes those up. Fixes [YOCTO #1103]. Signed-off-by: Tom Zanussi <tom.zanussi@intel.com>
