Im not sure this is the correct fix, if i understand the problem
correctly. Im assuming you don't have redboot at the bottom of flash,
but fis free thinks it is in use and so will not list this section.

Probably a better fix would be to set CYGBLD_REDBOOT_MIN_IMAGE_SIZE to
zero when CYGOPT_REDBOOT_FIS_REDBOOT is disabled. You could do this
from cdl, something like

    display       "Minimum image size"
    flavor        data
    default_value { CYGOPT_REDBOOT_FIS_REDBOOT ? 0x20000 : 0 }
    description "
       This option controls the minimum length of images kept by
       the FIS.  In particular, it should be large enough to hold
       the RedBoot primary image itself, as well as be a natural
       multiple of the FLASH erase block size."
