Indeed the Makefile contained a not needed reference.

I'm not so sure. Maybe it's better to clean up now, and deal with the
new image format requirements when we're at it. Please note that  the
mkimage  code  has  recenty  been added to the Linux kernel tree, and
there the sha1 reference was also removed. I think it makes sense  to
keep both in sync...
