I'm on the fence as to whether I submit that portion for merging since it adds extra dependencies on the u-boot tools and doesn't/can't build images for non-test applications. I thought this might be useful to have in the public repo but if not that's fine, too.

That's the kind of functionality I was going for. I didn't see a way to accomplish this in the waf build system, hence the patch. It's entirely possible I just missed the functionality somewhere, though.
