Basically, without this patch, the U-Boot DTB is included twice (once in
builtin u-boot.bin image, and a second time in the boot FIT image).

Since the second correct DTB is ignored, the default embedded one
is used, which is for another board (fsl-imx8mm-evk), which produce
some initialization errors on non-EVK boards.
