This is because YonQin was adding an android userdata partition to the partitioning script. Works fine on panda et al, because they start off with two partitions. origen and imx53 have that magic additional first partition, so this pushes it over the limit.

Basically, we just replace the reformatting of the boot partition with removal of a testboot directory, and point at the directory for grabbing the new kernel and initrd.

This would solve the issue of making sure we always have the latest bootargs and dtb files for booting, and get us one step closer to parity with a manually imaged system.
