    license: fix non-SPDX license being removed from INCOMPATIBLE_LICENSE
    A non-SPDX license (which is not an alias to an SPDX license) cannot
    currently be marked as incompatible in INCOMPATIBLE_LICENSE.
    In the current state, we take all INCOMPATIBLE_LICENSE and pass them
    through expand_wildcard_licenses which is only adding SPDX licenses that
    match the glob regexp of what is in INCOMPATIBLE_LICENSE (be it a direct
    match to an SPDX license or via an alias).
    This does not work well with custom licenses.
    LICENSE = "FooLicense"
    `bitbake foo`
    Gives no warning, no error, builds and packages successfully, because
    INCOMPATIBLE_LICENSE is basically empty since FooLicense is neither in
    Let's add the original licenses to the list returned by
    expand_wildcard_licenses to be able to handle the aforementioned case.
    INCOMPATIBLE_LICENSE = "FooLicense GPLv2 GPLv3+" used to "resolve" to
    "GPLv2 GPLv3". It now resolves to "FooLicense GPLv2 GPLv3 GPLv3+" which
    fixes the issue with custom licenses not being in SPDXLICENSEMAP or
    SRC_DISTRIBUTE_LICENSES and thus being left out of the blacklisted
