By default, do_rm_work either skips recipes entirely (when listed in
RM_WORK_EXCLUDE) or removes everything except for temp.

In meta-swupd, virtual image recipes collaborate on producing update
data for the base recipe. Tasks running in the base recipe need some
information from the virtual images.

Those files could be passed via a new shared work directory, but that
scatters data in even more places. It's simpler to use the normal
WORKDIR and teach rm_work.bbclass to not remove the special output
with the new RM_WORK_EXCLUDE_ITEMS.
