fetcher: Fixed remote removal not throwing exception.
Before this fix it is assumed that the removal of the remote can only fail because there is not remote to remove. This is a false assumption. Example error which would be ignored: git -c core.fsyncobjectfiles=0 remote rm origin failed with exit code 1, output: Note: A branch outside the refs/remotes/ hierarchy was not removed; to delete it, use: git branch -d master error: could not lock config file config error: Could not remove config section 'remote.origin' Due to the masking of this error a stranger error will be presented to the user, because this time we do not mask the exception: git -c core.fsyncobjectfiles=0 remote add --mirror=fetch origin failed with exit code 128, output: fatal: remote origin already exists. The most likely reason that the remote cannot be removed nor modified is that the DL_DIR/git2 does not have permissions compatible with the user running bitbake.
