Travis does not report an error, but Travis does not try to generate a
real 'flash.bin' with the required DDR, HDMI and ATF firmwares.

The error comes when we try to generate flash.bin with all these firmwares.

Without Baruch's patch I can not generate a flash.bin that can boot on
im8mq-evk, so that's why I see the lack of this patch as a big issue.
