As linux-yocto.inc would impact linux-yocto, linux-yocto-dev and linux-yocto-VERSION, can we overwrite LIC_FILES_CHKSUM only in meta/recipes-kernel/linux/linux-yocto-dev.bb?

I did a patch for this last week, but haven't sent it to the list yet,
since I have one more set of gcc issues to resolve

I'll send it along later today, but you can find it on my zedd/kernel
poky-contrib branch:

     linux-yocto-dev: update to v4.17+

     Updating the -dev kernel to v4.17+. We also tweak the License checksum
     in the -dev kernel since SPDX headers have been inserted upstream and
     that has changed the hash value.
