[meta-virtualization] [PATCH] go-native: don't use host /var/tmp for temp build artifacts

Similar to a recent change for go-cross we can potentially run in to a
build failure:

  go tool dist: mkdtemp(/var/tmp/go-cbuild-A0rrP5): No such file or directory

when the host doesn't have a /var/tmp or when the permissions don't
allow for the creation of the temporary directory. Instead of relying
on /var/tmp we create and use a temporary directory in the $WORKDIR to
work around this issue. This is passed to the build via the TMPDIR
environment variable.
