board: ls2080a: Add "mcinitcmd" env for MC & DPL deployment
Environment variable mcinitcmd is defined to initiate MC and DPL deployment from the location where it is stored (NOR, NAND, SD, SATA, USB) during booting. If this variable is not defined then macro MC_BOOT_ENV_VAR will be null and MC will not be booted and DPL will not be applied during U-boot booting.

+mcinitcmd: This environment variable is defined to initiate MC and DPL deployment
+ from the location where it is stored(NOR, NAND, SD, SATA, USB)during
+ u-boot booting.If this variable is not defined then MC_BOOT_ENV_VAR
+ will be null and MC will not be booted and DPL will not be applied
+ during U-boot booting.However the MC, DPC and DPL can be applied from
+ console independently.
+ The variable needs to be set from the console once and then on
+ rebooting the parameters set in the varible will automatically be
+ executed. The commmand is demostrated taking an example of mc boot
+ using NOR Flash i.e. MC, DPL, and DPC is stored in the NOR flash:
+ cp.b 0xa0000000 0x580300000 $filesize
+ cp.b 0x80000000 0x580800000 $filesize
+ cp.b 0x90000000 0x580700000 $filesize
+ setenv mcinitcmd 'fsl_mc start mc 0x580300000 0x580800000'
+ If only linux is to be booted then the mcinitcmd environment should be set as
+ setenv mcinitcmd 'fsl_mc start mc 0x580300000 0x580800000;fsl_mc apply DPL 0x580700000'
+ Here the addresses 0xa0000000, 0x80000000, 0x80000000 are of DDR to where
+ MC binary, DPC binary and DPL binary are stored and 0x580300000, 0x580800000
+ and 0x580700000 are addresses in NOR where these are copied. It is to be
+ noted that these addresses in 'fsl_mc start mc 0x580300000 0x580800000;fsl_mc apply DPL 0x580700000'
+ can be replaced with the addresses of DDR to
+ which these will be copied in case of these binaries being stored in other
+ devices like SATA, USB, NAND, SD etc.
Booting from NAND
Booting from NAND requires two images, RCW and u-boot-with-spl.bin.
