[ImageBuilder PATCH v2] uboot-script-gen: use size from arm64 Image header
Posted by Stewart Hildebrand 10 months ago
There is a corner case where the filesizes of the xen and Linux kernel images
are not sufficient. These binaries likely contain NOLOAD sections (e.g. bss),
which are not accounted in the filesize.

Check for the presence of an arm64 kernel image header, and get the effective
image size from the header. Use the effective image size for calculating the
next load address and for populating the size in the /chosen/dom*/reg property.
