LIN9-4155 : Using the useradd-static class may result in errors

The useradd-static class did not understand the -P or --clear-password flags.  Some example recipes that may be in various projects include these flags, and will trigger an error if present.

A simple workaround is to remove the 'meta-skeleton' layer from your project, to avoid the example recipes that trigger this failure.

Steps to Reproduce

Configure a project with --all-layers (or enable the meta-skeleton layer)

In your local.conf set: USERADDEXTENSION = "useradd-staticids"

Attempt a build (of anything).
