Removing any old references to systemtap from meta means we need to add
it here. It also adds systemtap support for the other, previously
uncovered meta-intel bsps.
Wouldn't it make more sense to add systemtap to and image recipe, either
a new recipe or a bbappend? Also, it seems to me that RRECOMMENDS would
make more sense than RDEPENDS - as it isn't required for boot.
Hmm, not following you here - why would I want a new image recipe for
systemtap?

Systemtap fits in with the other profiling tools in the
task-core-tools-profile as far as I can see;\
Ah, I see. OK.

this patch essentially adds
systemtap to that list, but since it won't run on half the architectures
we support, it can't be simply added to the recipe but needs to be
appended for each machine (well, that may change when I switch to
COMPATIBLE_HOST as pointed out by a couple people, but that was the
reason behind the current appends).
And, yeah, maybe RRECOMMENDs makes more sense here, will think about
changing that on the respin.
OK.
