sstate: Change overlapping files warning to a fatal error
When files overlap in the sysroot, something bad usually happened. We've had two independent cases recently where a couple of months after one of these warnings was shown, builds failed due to corruption. This change moves the warning to become a fatal error. The complaint I've had about this is that we need to tell the user what happened and more importantly how to recover from it. If we could recover from it, great but the trouble is we simply don't know what happened. As a compromise, we can document several of the possible scenarios in the error message. We don't normally go to this level of detail however in this case, I'm lacking other viable alternatives. I do believe it is important to stop as corruption occurs rather than letting the build contunue into territory that is not deterministic amongst other things. The complex message is followed by a simpler one in case the long message is too much for the user.

If the system knew how to recover from this automatically it would however there are several different scenarios which can result in this and we don't know which one this is. It may be you have switched providers of something like virtual/kernel (e.g. from linux-yocto to linux-yocto-dev), in that case you need to execute the clean task for both recipes and it will resolve this error. It may be you changed DISTRO_FEATURES from systemd to udev or vice versa. Cleaning those recipes should again resolve this error however switching DISTRO_FEATURES on an existing build directory is not supported, you should really clean out tmp and rebuild (reusing sstate should be safe). It could be the overlapping files detected are harmless in which case adding them to SSTATE_DUPWHITELIST may be the correct solution. It could also be your build is including two different conflicting versions of things (e.g. bluez 4 and bluez 5 and the correct solution for that would be to resolve the conflict.
