Hmm, why did you change it this way? Did you read my comment about this
combined image name from yesterday? I would really prefer to use the
already repsent and know image name "u-boot-with-spl.bin", which is used
by many other platforms already as a combined image with SPL + U-Boot

Is there a reason why we should not use this generic image name instead
of this newly created one?
