From: "Yann E. MORIN" <yann.morin.1998 at free.fr>

It can be useful to have different configuration use the same post-build
and/or post-image scripts as they share a common infrastructure, but yet
have minor differentiation.

This option allows passing zero or more additional arguments to each
post-build or post-image script.

The same set of extra arguments are passed to all scripts, it is not
possible to pass different arguments to each script.

Changes v1 -> v2:
  - $(TARGET_DIR) is no longer the only argument        (Baruch)
  - mention BR2_ROOTFS_POST_IMAGE_SCRIPT in the manual

 Just like for the _post-build scripts_ mentioned above, you also have
 access to the following environment variables from your _post-image
 scripts_: +BUILDROOT_CONFIG+, +HOST_DIR+, +STAGING_DIR+, +TARGET_DIR+,
 +BINARIES_DIR+ and +BASE_DIR+.

+Additionally, each of the +BR2_ROOTFS_POST_BUILD_SCRIPT+ and
