RFC: Devtool support to read BB_ENV_EXTRAWHITE variables and parse the env variables same as bitbake

Hello,

I have a use case where the user passes path to devtool modify using TOPDIR.
Ex. devtool modify linux-xlnx -n ${TOPDIR}/linux-xlnx

Since devtool doesn't evaluate TOPDIR as bitbake variable, during expansion it expands it as
devtool modify linux-xlnx -n /linux-xlnx

Can we add support to devtool that reads BB_ENV_EXTRAWHITE variable and parse the env variables same as bitbake ?

Thanks,
Chandana
