    labs: yocto-lab1: update to use krogoth branch
    Update the first lab of the yocto training to use the krogoth branch.
    All the modifications/differences:
       - Updated to use the krogoth tarball
       - Removed the BB_NUMBER_THREADS and PARALLEL_MAKE variables as there
       are automatically set now
       - The default rootfs archive is now .tar.bz2 by default
    Problems encountered:
       - Impossible to run the format_sdcard.sh script. I am on a Debian
       testing and I got error "unrecognized option "--in-order" and "--unit M"
       on "sfdisk" command.
