[OE-core] packagefeed-stability.bbclass problems

As advised a few weeks ago, I tried out "packagefeed-stability" to 
reduct the load on feed servers.

However, I ran into several problems with that:
- Some recipes cause the class to crash.
- On a second (and third) run, it spends over 15 minutes of running 
"do_package_compare_ipk" tasks.

So for now my conclusion has to be that it's useless in its current 
form, it will just add more load on the build servers and it apparently 
is rather sensitive to things we did in the past for some recipes.

Below an example crash traceback:

ERROR: enigma2-plugin-skins-magic-1.2+gitAUTOINC+8b5fb84750-r0 
do_package_compare_ipk: Error executing a python function in
