Deprecate distutils

Deprecating distutils*.bbclass

In Python 3.10 `distutils` has been deprecated and is to be removed in Python 3.12. In preparation for this, the `distutils*` classes have been deprecated and nearly all usage in oe-core has been removed.

We still have a few recipes under the meta-openembedded umbrella that inherit one of the `distutils` classes (the lowest common denominator is `distutils-common-base`)

To get a list, you can run the following command:

$ bitbake-layers show-recipes -i distutils-common-base -r

This is a call to arms, please help by picking one of the following.
