Applied to master, thanks.

I have some concerns about this change in that it will cause more "work"
in some cases even where it isn't needed. I'd rather that than the
current situation where we don't install enough of the sstate packages

We're going to have to revisit this at some point but it makes sense to
apply this right now.
