Simon Glass - Jan. 5, 2013, 1:52 a.m.
When signing images it is sometimes necessary to sign with different keys
at different times, or make the signer entirely separate from the FIT
creation to avoid needing the private keys to be publicly available in
the system.

Add a -F option so that key signing can be a separate step, and possibly
done multiple times as different keys are avaiable.
