[PATCH v2 1/2] fastboot: always try barebox_update handler for bbu- partitions

So far, fastboot barebox_update code was only entered when
filetype_is_barebox_image() returned true, a function exclusively used
for fastboot. Align this with normal barebox_update from the command
line by leaving the decision on whether the image is correctly to the
barebox_update handler if the user explicitly targets a bbu- fastboot

We keep the old check OR-ed to maintain backwards-compatibility for
invoking barebox_update for non bbu- fastboot partitions.
