At some point back in 2018 prior_stage_fdt_address and OF_PRIOR_STAGE got
introduced,  in order to support a DTB handed over by an earlier stage boo
loader.  However we have another option in the Kconfig (OF_BOARD) which has
identical semantics.

On RISC-V boards which during their startup,  some of the platforms, pick
up the DTB from a1 and copy it in their private gd_t.  Apart from that they
copy it to prior_stage_fdt_address,  if the Kconfig option is selected,
which is unnecessary.

So let's switch the config option for those boards to OF_BOARD and define
the required board_fdt_blob_setup() for them.

The previous patches removed OF_PRIOR_STAGE from the last consumers of the
Kconfig option.  Cleanup any references to it in documentation,  code and
configuration options.

 Normally binman is used with a board configured with OF_SEPARATE or OF_EMBED.

I was wondering if we need to check CONFIG_OF_BOARD here? I'm not sure
whether we should distinguish the value of a1 register which is
meaningless. It means that if we don't expect the device tree to be
passed by prior stage, then the a1 register might be a trash value at
the beginning, so it would still return the arch.firmware_fdt_addr
here, rather than _end. And do you think that we should enable the
CONFIG_OF_BOARD for unmatched and unleashed? Because it seems to me
that we actually pass the device tree by prior stage (i.e. OpenSBI).

I thought about it as well.  Those boards were configured up to now with
'CONFIG_OF_SEPARATE'.  Which means we are looking at an existing issue?
IOW the device tree was passed as part of U-Boot,  which would mean a1 would
have had thrash as well.  Maybe a1 always has a valid DT on those boards
so we never noticed?

Yes in that case what you request makes sense for unmatched/unleashed.
Return gd->arch.firmware_fdt_addr in OF_BOARD is selected otherwise return
_end (instead of the current check).
If that sounds good to you I'll send a v2

Looking a bit more at it...
Apparently those boards boot from SPL.  So it's SPL->OpenSBI->U-Boot.
By having the config as OF_SEPARATE the *U-Boot* DTB is used. SPL passes it to 
OpenSBI and OpenSBI passes it on a1 to U-Boot proper.  That's why the register
reading works for that config. 

In that case the pre-existing code is 'wrong' as well,  since the DTB is
not at _end,  but the bogus path is never taken... 
(check the __weak board_fdt_blob_setup for details).

So I think I'll send a v2, keeping the config as-is and fixing the return
address of the DTB in case OF_BOARD is ever selected.

If I remember correctly, the SPL would calculate the size of u-boot
proper, and then put the DTB at the end of  u-boot proper, so the DTB
would fortuitously be put at the _end location.

Yes, it seems to me that we could use a config to separate the case
between the prior stage and the _end. Just note that, there is a patch
on the fly, it modifies the same snippet of code, you might need to
update your code based on top of it.

I haven't yet seen the creation part,  but looking into the default
board_fdt_blob_setup() the location seems to vary depending on
CONFIG_SPL_BUILD.  If that's selected (which is the case for those boards),
then it depends on yet another SPL config for a separate .bsdd section.

I don't have a board to verify my suspicion but I think reading the DTB
without looking into a1 is broken for these boards.

Untangling OF_SEPARATE and OF_BOARD is part of a bigger revamp I wanted to 
do on the handover of a device tree from previous bootloaders,  since we do 
have similar 'problems' in Arm and TF-A.  But in principle OF_SEPARATE
shouldn't have per board code to overwrite it.  OF_BOARD should be used for
that.  OF_SEPARATE should merely mean "The dtb is concatenated to my U-Boot
binary.

Right now RISC-V uses OF_SEPARATE reads the DTB on SPL and then goes back
to using the a1 register for U-Boot proper.  We could instead read the 
U-Boot concatenated DTB always in that case.  OF_BOARD would then be used in
case OpenSBI is compiled with a *different* DTB and you'd want to use that.
Any idea if OpenSBI performs fixups before handing over the dtb in a1?

Unfortunately I don't have a board to test apart from QEMU.  Let me respin
this, with a potential fix I have in mind and we can discuss further.

I'll reply to that and see if the _end is indeed a problem.

It does.  One of the things it does is add a reserved memory entry for
itself.

Ah lovely :(, then untangling that is not an option atm :(.  We still have
to keep board_fdt_blob_setup() a __weak symbol for those boards, even if
OF_SEPARATE is selected.

configuration options.
