"S" represents where our source is. There is code like do_unpack
wants to clean S before rerunning the task. It can't just clean
everything in WORKDIR as there is T, recipe-sysroot* and more that
to be left alone (e.g. recipe-sysroot-native may have
do_fetch/do_unpack dependencies).

S is usually defined as ${BPN}-${PV} via ${BP}.

Maybe disallow workdir to be used as S it’s a rare case anyway. Add a
QA check and that

It isn't that rare, there are 42 in OE-Core alone.

I do think we should probably migrate away from those though.
