In order to achieve reproducible builds in U-Boot, timestamps that are defined
at build-time have to be somewhat eliminated. The SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH environment
variable allows setting a fixed value for those timestamps.

Simply by setting SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH to a fixed value, a number of targets can be
built reproducibly. This is the case for e.g. sunxi devices.

However, some other devices might need some more tweaks, especially regarding
the image generation tools.
