libfdt: Add a function to write a property placeholder

The existing function to add a new property to a tree being built requires
that the entire contents of the new property be passed in. For some
applications it is more convenient to be able to add the property contents
later, perhaps by reading from a file. This avoids double-buffering of the
contents.

Add a new function to support this and adust the existing fdt_property() to
use it.
