The image metadata (more precisely the boardname) are used to ensure 
that the image matches the board. We do not need any additional board 

Even if the image metadata are not yet enforced on ramips (due to 
handful of boards still using the old image build code), flashing an 
image with metadata not matching the current board is refused. Flashing 
an image without metadata is still possible till metadata are enforced.
