[wic] race condition: do not update the fstab
do_image_wic will run in parallel with other jobs in the current codebase of OE. Then these other jobs might get the wrong content for /etc/fstab that is modified by do_image_wic. To prevent this behaviour, disable the modification in wic. NOTE: This might have consequences on custom or complex wks files. Thus allow the user to override this.
