kernel: Add basic fitImage support
This patch adds support for generating a kernel fitImage, which is a a successor to the uImage format. Unlike uImage, which could only contain the kernel image itself, the fitImage can contain all kinds of artifacts, like the kernel image, device tree blobs, initramfs images, binary firmwares etc. Furthermore, the fitImage supports different kinds of checksums, not only CRC32 like the uImage did. Last, but not least, fitImage supports signatures such that either the whole image or it's parts can be signed and then in turn can be verified by the bootloader. So far we only add support for wrapping the kernel image and DTB into the fitImage. The fitImage uses the sha1 checksum, which is the default.
