How to embed a required host/cross tool

to setup a disk to make it bootable on a regular PC (to use u-boot-v2 as a 
bootloader in the x86 world), a small host/cross tool is required. This tool 
must patch the binary u-boot-v2 image after storing it on this disk.

To be able to patch at the correct offsets, this small tool and u-boot-v2's 
linker script must be in sync. To ensure that, I would like to include this 
tool into the u-boot-v2 source tree.

But where? The 'tools/' subdirectory is gone.
