u-boot-file appears to be hard-coded; there may be other boards which
use a different u-boot artifact. Also, why return a single file, rather
than just building a package and then allowing other functions to pick
the appropriate file out of the resulting package?

I wondered "why does it have to be cross-compiled" but then realized
that came from the existing make-u-boot-package function. I've mostly
been building u-boot natively these days. :)

live well,
