With Ramdisk: kernel is 1st, ramdisk is 2nd, and dts is an optional
	3rd file.
Without ramdisk: kernel is 1st, and dts is an optional 2nd file.

The image type will be used to find out what is what.

That would be an option, too, but I think my proposal  is  easier  to
remember, especially when thinking of the multi-file image case.

Hi there! This is just a note from me, to you, to tell you, the  per-
son  reading this note, that I can't think up any more famous quotes,
jokes, nor bizarre stories, so you may as well go home.
