[PATCH] fix devicetree alignment

The following fixes a nasty problem with passing devicetrees to
the (ARM-) Kernel. In short, we are not allowed to cross 1MiB
boundaries with the devicetree. This can happen sometimes since
we allocate space for the devicetree using memalign(). I think
this is rather a kernel bug since this restriction is not documented
anywhere. Anyway, working around it in barebox is easy enough.


Sascha Hauer (2):
      bootm: Add a define for the additional devicetree size
      bootm: Do not cross 1MiB sections for the devicetree
