Currently its not possible to distinguish between normal builds and
builds performed by the build bots/CI, thus leading to a workarounds
like for example in commit 4c78028737c3 ("mksunxi_fit_atf.sh: Allow for
this to complete when bl31.bin is missing"), where producing unusable
binaries is preferred in favor of a green automatic builds.

So lets try to fix this properly, add BUILDBOT config options which
could be set on the build bots/CI and the codebase can use this new
config option to workaround the issues in more clear manner.
