The layers from meta-arm are required not only when building for the N1SDP, but
also when building a virtualization image (as bundled Guest VM is generic-arm64

The layers required from ``meta-arm`` depend on the EWAOL distribution image:
* An EWAOL virtualization distribution image requires ``meta-arm`` and
``meta-arm-toolchain``, as by default a bundled Guest VM image based on the
``generic-arm64`` ``MACHINE`` is built.
