scripts: consolidate code to find bitbake path
Several of these scripts were using duplicated code (and slightly different methods) to find the path to bitbake and add its lib subdirectory to the Python import path. Add some common code to do this and change the scripts to use it. Fixes [YOCTO #5076]. Signed-off-by: Paul Eggleton <>
