I don't know why patchwork didn't see this.  That said, mkimage -A arm
is bad.  UBOOT_ARCH is right, and comes from kernel-arch.bbclass.  So, I
think a full patch would need to add in changes to image.bbclass to
inherit kernel-arch so that UBOOT_ARCH will be evaluated.

And yes, this I think should be in bitbake.conf with the rest of the
image magics
