Think about the situation that someone whats to use DHCP to boot his
board, which will usually result in the TFTP download of exactly
*one* image from a TFTP server. That image should then contain the
Linux kernel, the dtb, the QE firmware image, eventually a ramdisk,
and maybe even more... That's what the new image format is about.
