Unify b.L Builds

Registered by Zach Pfeffer on 2012-10-24

Why?
The RTSM boot-wrapper in the Vexpress builds are under rtsm/ folder in the boot tarball. The images failed to boot in LAVA due to different naming convention and the location of the bootwrapper(boot/rtsm/linux-system-semi.axf in VE build and boot/linux-system-ISW.axf in IKS build) . This is a result of the different boot-wrapper in the 2 builds and different build location chosen to place the generated boot-wrapper. This makes job to fail in LAVA for MP project.

Context?
The b.L effort.

What gets produced?
b.L builds that all get built in the same way and produce similar files.

Where will the work get put?
android-build.linaro.org.

Notes:
[2012/10/23 pfefferz] Please put notes here.
[2012/11/19 pfefferz] bhoj, need to check with the b.L guys to see if they want to sync with the upstream bootwrapper
[2012/11/26 pfefferz] This BP is blocked on having a unified bootwrapper. IKS guys say that a unified bootwrapper is a low priority.

Meta:
Headline: b.L builds now work the same.
Acceptance: All b.L builds build the same and can be worked with in the same way.
