Subject: [RFC PATCH] arm64: Image: Allow the appending of a device tree binary
Date: Thu, 4 Jun 2015 17:35:04 +0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <1433410504-11628-1-git-send-email-yangyingliang@huawei.com> (raw)

This patch provides the ability to boot using a device tree that is appended
to the raw binary Image (e.g. cat Image <filename>.dtb > Image_w_dtb).

Both BE and LE conditions are tested.

Got references from e2a6a3aa ("ARM: zImage: Allow the appending of a device tree binary").
