If the file name is already the appropriate one (this is the first
version of my patch), using start_file and fixup_file is useless. And
I don't feel it is a good idea to set start_file and fixup_file if the
files already have expected names, because using these options is
discouraged: https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/configuration/config-txt/boot.md.
