You are right. I rephrased that to:
Support using Flattened Image Tree (FIT) Images. FIT is an image
format introduced by U-Boot. A FIT image contains one or multiple
kernels, device trees and initrds. The FIT image itself is a flattened
device tree binary. Have a look at the u-boot source tree
in the "doc/uImage.FIT" folder for more information:
Does that sound ok?
