zynq_zed: bump U-Boot to xilinx-v2016.2
This is the latest release tag in the Xilinx repository, based on U-Boot v2016.01 in the mainline. Commit 46d6a561be41 ("zedboard: Generate BOOT.BIN automatically") switched from the Xilinx GitHub repository to the U-Boot mainline, but this commit gets it back to the Xilinx GitHub repository for the following reasons: - This defconfig still relies on the Xilinx's local repository for the kernel. The vendor does the best test for the combination of U-Boot and the kernel with the same release tag (xilinx-v2016.2 in this case). - At the time of commit 46d6a561be41, the u-boot-xlnx still needed manual copy of ps7_init(_gpl).c/h in order to build a working SPL image. So, the mainline U-Boot had advantage in that point of time. However, the improvement in the mainline U-Boot was merged into the u-boot-xlnx at the xilinx-v2015.3 release. Now, the mainline and the u-boot-xlnx are even in this point of view. - The mainline U-Boot defaults to boot FIT, so something must be done; either patch environments around with a local patch to switch to uImage booting (current solution), or build an FIT with a post build script (chromebook snow does this). On the other hand, the Xilinx repository defaults to uImage booting, so it is straightforward, and needs no addition care. This commit does: - Switch to the Xilinx custom git repository, and stick to the xilinx-v2016.2 tag. - Delete the local patch board/avnet/zedboard/uboot/0001... since the Xilinx custom repository can boot uImage by default. - Enable BR2_TARGET_UBOOT_FORMAT_IMG instead of ..._FORMAT_DTB_IMG since all the Zynq boards in U-Boot enable CONFIG_OF_EMBED. - Replace BR2_TARGET_UBOOT_ZYNQ_IMAGE with BR2_TARGET_UBOOT_SPL_NAME since U-Boot can natively generate the Zynq boot image now. The Zynq image support for mkimage tool was upstreamed at v2016.01 (so xilinx-v2016.1 as well), so no additional tool is needed any more. - Update readme.txt Signed-off-by: Masahiro Yamada <yamada.masahiro@socionext.com> Reviewed-by: Matt Weber <matthew.weber@rockwellcollins.com> Signed-off-by: Thomas Petazzoni <thomas.petazzoni@free-electrons.com>
