OK, and in this case we're talking about tools/k3_fit_atf.sh which is
based on board/sunxi/mksunxi_fit_atf.sh ?  That's two similar but not
quite just mergable POSIX SH tools.  If we end up with an intermediate
state of having tools/generators/ with a number of $(soc)_fit_atf.sh
scripts that'll start to make it clearer what is/isn't the same.  Maybe
we won't have a single tool, but if it's at least make it clearer where
things belong and we can get consistency.  Thanks!
