I think what's happened, but I haven't verified is that Andrew took an
incorrect patch to make 'mkuboot.sh', which invokes mkimage to produce a
uImage, fail if mkimage isn't found. This isn't right. The problem the
patch was trying to fix is that mkuboot.sh will say that it made a
uImage, even if mkimage isn't found.
