qemuboot.bbclass: do not hook into do_rootfs
Writing qemuboot.conf in write_qemuboot_conf() does not modify the rootfs and thus conceptually shouldn't be executed as part of rootfs creation. Running it as separate task is cleaner and fixes the problem of missing qemuboot.conf files for meta-swupd virtual images; those images replace do_rootfs and ROOTFS_POSTPROCESS_COMMANDs don't run at all. The task gets added such that it runs roughly at the same time as before. Probably it doesn't actually need to depend on do_rootfs, but this way we don't write a useless qemuboot.conf in cases where do_rootfs fails.
