I like this -- it unbreaks a top-level parallel build for me. I no longer 
have to run `make -j32 target-finalize && make` :).

It also looks like something which will eventually enable genimage.sh to be 
run as a proper make-level target. That's important for me because I run 
genimage twice in a row; my second invocation takes the just-built image, 
puts that into a squashfs archive because of its compression, and uses the 
result to build another image for re-flashing the system via a USB stick.

Just build-tested for now, but I'll be happy to send a proper Tested-By 
once I verify that my board still boots with the result.

With kind regards,
