Ok, there was a problem with the -skip option.  Removing it altogether
solves the problem for the u-boot.imx coming from a Yocto build:
cfimager -f u-boot-from-Yocto-build.imx -raw -offset 1024 -d d

However, the u-boot.imx coming from u-boot-fslc cross-compiled with a Yocto
installed toolchain doesn't.  Back to square one...
