From: Ken Werner <ken.werner@linaro.org>

Introduce a new variable called IMAGE_ROOTFS_ALIGNMENT that allows to control
the aligment of the size of the rootfs. Its default value is set to 1KiB so
that the existing behaviour is not changed. In case the SD card emulation of
a QEMU system emulator gets used you may set the alignment to 2MiB.
