[OE-core] Deployment for machine X will remove its results from machine Y's deploy dir

Here's an example recipe to demonstrate the issue. Save it as "deployme.bb" 
into a recipe dir. Then build it for two machines. Building it for one machine 
will remove it from the deployment directory of the other. This problem has 
been bugging me for months, I had files just "disappear" mysteriously from the 
deploy directory and seemingly random times, and now I finally figured out 
what causes it.

SUMMARY = "Demonstrate a bug in OE deployment"
DESCRIPTION = "Build this package for a machine X, then look at the image's \
  deploy directory. You'll see a deployme.txt there. Now build it for another \
  machine, e.g. "Y". The deployme.txt for machine X will have disappeared \
  from the image dir. This appears to be a bug in OE's deployment."

inherit allarch deploy

do_compile () {
	echo "Hello world!" > deployme.txt

do_deploy () {
     install -d ${DEPLOYDIR}
     install -m 644 ${B}/deployme.txt ${DEPLOYDIR}/

addtask deploy before do_build after do_compile
