[PATCH skeleton v2 0/3] Flash bmc updates

These are the initial two patches to the BMC flash update REST code that will increase reliability and make utility of the update process.  These are in preparation to address openbmc/openbmc#293.

1. The u-boot environment was copying the raw flash for update, which would interfere with actually applying a mac address via rest and with setting or clearing the one-time boot overrides.

2. Prepare for the whitelist to be split, and do not error if the whitelist was previously removed.  The old behavior would cause an error state if the whitelist had been removed by a previous update application in the current boot.
