This patch seems to cause mkimage to generate v1 images with invalid
checksums (which fail to verify with kwboot or mkimage -l). Could you
double check whether you can reproduce on the latest u-boot master? I
don't really understand how this patch is supposed to work
(headersz_lsb/headersz_msb get updated *after* csum8 has already been

$ tools/mkimage -n ./board/qnap/qsw-98dx3236/kwbimage.cfg -T kwbimage
-a 0x00800000 -e 0x00800000 -d u-boot.bin u-boot.kwb
Image Type:   MVEBU Boot from nand Image
Image version:1
BIN Hdr Size: 76224 Bytes = 74.44 KiB = 0.07 MiB
Data Size:    735764 Bytes = 718.52 KiB = 0.70 MiB
Load Address: 00800000
Entry Point:  00800000

$ sudo tools/kwboot -a -b u-boot.kwb -t -B 115200 /dev/ttyUSB0
kwboot version 2022.01-rc4-00075-g3bd6c62cf4-dirty
u-boot.kwb: Invalid image.

(The specific kwbimage.cfg/board is still a WIP, I can try to provide
some more repro if somehow there is something specific to my setup,
but I doubt it.)
