    ARM: Put the ROM stage into the image before other bits.
    On ARM, there's frequently some firmware built into the SOC which runs
    first and which loads other firmware like Coreboot from some other
    media. To prevent the bootblock from having to know how to find and load
    the ROM stage from what may be a complicated source (sd card,
    netbooting, etc.), we can put the ROM stage immediately after the
    bootblock and ensure that they're both loaded at the same time.
    This change adjusts the Makefile.inc for ARM so that the ROM stage is put
    into the image before any other files so that we know it comes first.
    This changes the behavior of the CONFIG_UPDATE_IMAGE config option used
    by abuild, although it's not entirely clear whether that's still used.
