binman: Automatically include a U-Boot .dtsi file

For boards that need U-Boot-specific additions to the device tree, it is
a minor annoyance to have to add these each time the tree is synced with

Add a means to include a file (e.g. u-boot.dtsi) automatically into the .dts
file before it is compiled.

The file uses is the first one that exists in this list:

Automatic .dtsi inclusion
It is sometimes inconvenient to add a 'binman' node to the .dts file for each
board. This can be done by using #include to bring in a common file. Another
approach supported by the U-Boot build system is to automatically include
a common header. You can then put the binman node (and anything else that is
specific to U-Boot, such as u-boot,dm-pre-reloc properies) in that header
Binman will search for the following files in arch/<arch>/dts:
<dts>-u-boot.dtsi where <dts> is the base name of the .dts file
U-Boot will only use the first one that it finds. If you need to include a
more general file you can do that from the more specific file using #include.
If you are having trouble figuring out what is going on, you can uncomment
the 'warning' line in scripts/Makefile.lib to see what it has found:
# Uncomment for debugging
# $(warning binman_dtsi_options: $(binman_dtsi_options))
Code coverage
Binman is a critical tool and is designed to be very testable. Entry
implementations target 100% test coverage. Run 'binman -T' to check this.
To enable Python test coverage on Debian-type distributions (e.g. Ubuntu):
$ sudo apt-get install python-pip python-pytest
$ sudo pip install coverage
