bool "Generate platform data for use in SPL"
depends on SPL_OF_CONTROL
For very constrained SPL environments the overhead of decoding
device tree nodes and converting their contents into platform data
is too large. This overhead includes libfdt code as well as the
device tree contents itself. The latter is fairly compact, but the
former can add 3KB or more to a Thumb 2 Image.
This option enables generation of platform data from the device
tree as C code. This code creates devices using U_BOOT_DEVICE()
declarations. The benefit is that it allows driver code to access
the platform data directly in C structures, avoidin the libfdt
This option works by generating C structure declarations for each
compatible string, then adding platform data and U_BOOT_DEVICE
declarations for each node. See README.platdata for more
