I think solution suggested by Jagan's is more generic and more useful.
It doesn't hard code the path of bl31.elf file, instead it uses global
BL31 environment variable.
If the path is hard coded then buildroot build fails for atleast
rk3399 soc based boards because
in buildroot it is  BL31=$(BINARIES_DIR)/bl31.elf, so it looks for
bl31.elf file in binary directory
instead of uboot directory.
We encountered this build failure in recently while adding  RK3399
NanoPi M4 support in buildroot.
Could we consider solution suggested by Jagan while we can retain the
variable name BL31 as is.

 BL31 buildroot variable
Thanks a lot,
