The goal is to generate a file named flash.bin which could be written into
sd/emmc once including itb.
This patch is to prepare a common file that could shared when itb needed,
such as i.MX8MM EVK.
If other boards no need itb, another cfg could be added into board directory
or soc directory.

These files are just to let tools/imx8m_image.sh check whether these files
