Quick question, semi on topic. I have a similar case (and a driver in
the pipeline),
however all I got is a (persistent over reboot) hardware register to
which I can write whatever.
On the other side I'd have u-boot pull out the value, but as it's up
to u-boot to
implement whatever it does with this info I'm kinda struggling with the idea
of a standardized binding. In my case I'd like it to go into 'safe
mode' or 'firmware update'.

With loader = <0xace0ba5e>, <0xdeadbeef> ... and loader-names <> I
could have u-boot read the values
from fdt at boot. Then again I'm not describing hardware, but specific
settings ...

Would that be acceptable?
