[PATCH RFC u-boot-mvebu 48/59] tools: mkimage: Do not try to open datafile when it is skipped

When mkimage was instructed to skip datafile via option -s then do not try
to validate or open datafile as it does not have to exist or to be
specified via -d option.

This change allows to use -s option for skipping datafile when -d option
for datafile was not specified.
