Mb build was setup and done under one layer, with “distro” and “bsp“
at the same layer, I wanted to split them up into separate layers
inorder to better conform to the Yocto standard…. (Note my kernel
builds and runs correctly when split or not split)
When not split “Yocto-check-layer” calls me out for having “distro”
and “bsp” in same layer, when I split them I am seeing the following
for each new layer:
Can someone explain the errors the script is reporting and how to
resolve (these are not seen build the split or non-split images) ?

It looks like this packagegroup has a RDEPENDS on "shim" while the code
can't find the recipe. If that RDEPENDS is correct, this layer probably
needs to add a LAYERDEPENDS on a layer that has this recipe in
