When trying to bootup qemuarma9 BSP with uImage, I ran into the below issues:

1. Need u-boot-mkimage-native depend.
kernel.bbclass just checks if KERNEL_IMAGETYPE is uImage, if it is the depend will be added. But, it doesn't check KERNEL_ALT_IMAGETYPE.
In the patch, the check for alt image is added.

2. UBOOT_LOADADDRESS is passed to uboot-mkimage in do_uboot_mkimage. But, this function just check if KERNEL_IMAGETYPE is uImage or not. It doesn't check KERNEL_ALT_IMAGETYPE.
The patch adds the check.

3. KERNEL_ALT_IMAGETYPE is not deployed at all, although it is built. So, we need install, deploy and package the atl image.


The following changes since commit 68824d9b8f6e290da078383316b3f4b732585f2b:
