 Documentation issue of installer.conf

Here is some documentation issue of installer.conf usage in wr-installer readme.

 ## Adding custom installer.conf to installer image

The intaller(typo) script can read answers from /etc/installer.conf(No such file) to help
speed up the installation process(Should : speed up the build process).  To add one to the installer image
requires the user to either copy the file to their project directory and/or
configure their local.conf file.

    cp <path>/installer.conf <installer_build_dir>/bitbake_build/conf/.


    edit <installer_build_dir>/bitbake_build/conf/local.conf
    WRL_INSTALLER_CONF = "/my/installer.conf"

Add following limitation to the installer.conf function?
1. Include same target build project. 
2. This function does not work when include an ext image.

Steps to Reproduce

 1. project1:configure --enable-board=intel-x86-64 --enable-kernel=standard --enable-rootfs=glibc-std+installer-support --with-sstate-dir=/buildarea1/build/SSTATE_CACHE --enable-bootimage=ext4
2. make all
3. cp export/dist/.buildstamp /tmp/buildstamp
4. project2:configure --enable-board=intel-x86-64 --enable-kernel=standard --enable-rootfs=glibc-std+installer-support --with-sstate-dir=/buildarea1/build/SSTATE_CACHE --enable-bootimage=ext4
5. echo WRL_INSTALLER_CONF = "/tmp/buildstamp" >> local.conf
