[PATCH 1/3] ARM: bootm: Add option boot using ATAGs

Mon Jun 11 13:42:43 PDT 2018


So far we can only force legacy boot using ATAGs by executing
'oftree -f'. Said command is going away as often this command
is not safe to call. Add an alternative way using the
global.bootm.boot_atag environment variable.
