systemd-boot.bbclass: Use bb.fatal() instead of raising FuncFailed
This sets a good example and avoids unnecessarily contributing to perceived complexity and cargo culting. Motivating quote below: < kergoth> the *original* intent was for the function/task to error via whatever appropriate means, bb.fatal, whatever, and funcfailed was what you'd catch if you were calling exec_func/exec_task. that is, it's what those functions raise, not what metadata functions should be raising < kergoth> it didn't end up being used that way < kergoth> but there's really never a reason to raise it yourself FuncFailed.__init__ takes a 'name' argument rather than a 'msg' argument, which also shows that the original purpose got lost.
