The do_deploy runs depmodwrapper which requires
pkgdata/kernel-depmod/kernel-abiversion, which is generated by
PACKAGEFUNCS. So we need let do_deploy depend on do_packagedata.

This can fix the errors which happens sometimes when kernel upgrades:
DEBUG: Executing shell function do_deploy
Error: Kernel version 4.8.8-WR9.0.0.1_standard does not match kernel-abiversion 

And we only see this error when kernel upgrades and rebuild, but doesn't
see it in a normal build, this is becuase depmodwrapper doesn't exit
error when kernel-depmod/kernel-abiversion doesn't exit, it just prints
an error which should go into log.do_deploy:
if [ ! -r /path/to/sysroots/qemux86-64/pkgdata/kernel-depmod/kernel-abiversion 
]; then
    echo "Unable to read: 
/path/to/sysroots/qemux86-64/pkgdata/kernel-depmod/kernel-abiversion" >&2

We can see that there is no "exit 1", I guess it was designed to let it
can run without kernel-abiversion
