sys-kernel/raspberrypi-image: install device tree blobs

Upstream git repo provides binaries of two natures in a single

* boot firmware files;
* prebuilt kernel files.

boot/*.dtb, boot/overlays/ belong to kernel, not boot firmware.

But for historical reasons, these files were installed by
sys-boot/raspberrypi-firmware package rather than
sys-kernel/raspberrypi-image, which would be more correct.

The problem with this is that users of kernels different than
sys-kernel/raspberrypi-image need to install different files into these
locations. This means such people have to avoid using
sys-boot/raspberrypi-firmware package completely.

A blocker dependency on old sys-boot/raspberrypi-firmware versions is
added to protect from a situation when just raspberrypi-image is being
upgraded, and a package manager ends up with a file collision during
installation phase.

Package-Manager: Portage-2.3.66, Repoman-2.3.16
