* Add option -p to mkimage for always alligning an image to word boundary.

This patch adds a feature to tools/mkimage.c by making it possible to 
always align a filesystem image to word boundary. Images created with this 
option are always aligned on word boundary and will always correctly be 
loaded with the ARM RVDS when using raw mode (Raw data one word per word 
of memory). Images created without this option will not boot with u-boot 
and abort with "Data CRC error". This situation has been reported several 
times on this maillinglist.

It is tested against todays git repository.
