package/rpi-firmware: install DTB blobs
Add an option to install all the DTBs: - standard DTBs for standalon A/B and A+/B+ models; - overlay DTBs for the 'hats' addon boards. Install the DTBs as per the traditional layout expected by all RPi users, that is: - base DTBs alongside the other boot files; - overlay DTBs in a sub-directory. This requires the user provide a specially configured Linux defconfig file, as the default ones do not enable USE_OF. [Thomas: adjust comment explaining why we use a different version when installing the DTBs is selected.] Signed-off-by: "Yann E. MORIN" <yann.morin.1998@free.fr> Signed-off-by: Thomas Petazzoni <thomas.petazzoni@free-electrons.com>

+ for the device tree.
+ Note that the defconfig files in the Raspberry Pi fork of the
+ Linux kernel do not enable support for the Device Tree. You'll
