We should only use 'imply' for suggested settings and never for hard

In an OS distribution we only want to ship a single version of mkimage. 
So it is good to elimate symbol CONFIG_MXS.

How mkimage is built should not depend on CONFIG_TOOLS_LIBCRYPTO.

symbol for it."

We should therefore remove the following dependencies in tools/Makefile:
