[PATCH v2] arm/docs: Clarify legacy DT bindings on UEFI

Posted by Luca Fancellu 1 week, 1 day ago
Since the introduction of UEFI boot for Xen, the legacy
compatible strings were not supported and the stub code
was checking only the presence of “multiboot,module” to
require the Xen UEFI configuration file or not.
The documentation was not updated to specify that behavior.

Add a phrase to docs/misc/arm/device-tree/booting.txt
to clarify it.
