useradd-staticids.bbclass: Allow missing UIDs/GIDs to generate warnings
Previously when USERADD_ERROR_DYNAMIC was set to "1", an exception was raised if no numeric UID/GID could be determined for a user/group. Now it is possible to set it to either "error", which results in the old behavior, or "warn" in which case a warning is issued instead. For backwards compatibility reasons, it is still possible to set USERADD_ERROR_DYNAMIC to "1" and get an exception in case of failure.
