+You will need these files from Xilinx SDK installation to generate

+Buildroot will create the following files and place them in the

+ zynq-zed.dtb
+ rootfs.cpio.uboot

+uboot.bin -- U-Boot SPL w/ Xilinx boot.bin wrapper
Due to licensing issues, the files ps7_init.c/h are not able to be
distributed with the U-Boot source code. These files are required to make a
boot.bin file.
