spl: document 'chosen/u-boot, spl-boot-device'
To let the full U-Boot know where it was booted from (i.e. which of the entries in /chosen/u-boot,spl-boot-order' contained a valid image), we define (and document) /chosen/u-boot,spl-boot-device as the property that could/should automatically be injected by SPL. This commit only contains a documentation change, which documents the new property and the intended usage. Signed-off-by: Philipp Tomsich <> Tested-by: Klaus Goger <>

+u-boot,spl-boot-device property
+This property is a companion-property to the u-boot,spl-boot-order and
+will be injected automatically by the SPL stage to notify a later stage
+of where said later stage was booted from.
+You should not define this property yourself in the device-tree, as it
+may be overwritten without warning.
