Linaro CI hwpack name improvements

Oops! I am sorry if I have misunderstood the BP
If we check the Acceptance criteria, it says
"Acceptance: The new name of hwpack generated by the linaro-hwpack-replace
contains the defconfig information."
If we need to change the path of where the hwpack are stored and not the
hwpack names then we need not have to
change anything in the linaro-hwpack-replace. In that case we would need to
rewrite the BP with appropriate items.
