"""U-Boot SPL binary
Properties / Entry arguments:
- filename: Filename of u-boot-spl.bin (default 'spl/u-boot-spl.bin')
This is the U-Boot SPL (Secondary Program Loader) binary. This is a small
binary which loads before U-Boot proper, typically into on-chip SRAM. It is
responsible for locating, loading and jumping to U-Boot. Note that SPL is
not relocatable so must be loaded to the correct address in SRAM, or written
to run from the correct address if direct flash execution is possible (e.g.
on x86 devices).
SPL can access binman symbols at runtime. See:
'Access to binman entry offsets at run time (symbols)'
in the binman README for more information.
The ELF file 'spl/u-boot-spl' must also be available for this to work, since
binman uses that to look up symbols to write into the SPL binary.
