The issue is that preboot= variable is defined in ENV array two times.
Once in Kconfig and second time in regular environment define.
It is just coincidence that the definition from Kconfig is ignored
because currently it is put _after_ the regular preboot= definition. But
this is fragile and probably some unrelated change/patch could change
We really do not want two preboot= definitions in ENV array and pray
that the correct one would be used by U-Boot at runtime.
