toolchain: fix the helpers.mk comment
This commit fixes various typos and mistakes in the comment at the top of the helpers.mk file: * usefull -> useful * The optional stripping of libraries no longer exists, so there's no reason to mention it. * Indicate that the copy_toolchain_lib_root function is also used by the glibc package, not only by the external toolchain logic. * Separate more clearly the top comment introducing the entire file, from the comment introducing the first function. [Peter: reword top comment, add missing 'by'] Signed-off-by: Thomas Petazzoni <thomas.petazzoni@free-electrons.com> Signed-off-by: Peter Korsgaard <peter@korsgaard.com>
