recipes/*-cross recipes: ignore TARGET_ARCH sstate hash
" --machines" showed that shared packages like gcc-cross-powerpc64 have a sstate signature that depends on TUNEFLAGS. As a result, there are unnecessary rebuilds and potential conflicts in a multiconfig. That's due to the way how TARGET_ARCH is set. Richard Purdie suggested setting TARGET_ARCH[vardepvalue] as fix, which works. It would be shorter to do that in cross.bbclass instead of repeating the relevant line in different recipes, but Richard was concerned about potential side-effects in other usages of cross.bbclass. TARGET_GOARM as used in is still causing signature differences for go-cross-powerpc64 and machines b4420qds-64b and p5020ds-64b. This needs further investigation.
