[PATCH 4.9 086/130] ARM: dts: dm816x: Add an empty chosen node to top level DTSI

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Tue Jan 24 2017 - 03:05:02 EST

4.9-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Javier Martinez Canillas <javier@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

commit 6ed80b3a232e61da6d0189bbbe2b2b9afaefe3b3 upstream.

Commit 06bfb9c19957 ("ARM: dts: dm816x: Remove skeleton.dtsi usage")
removed the skeleton.dtsi usage since we want to get rid of it.

But this can cause issues when booting a kernel with a boot-loader
that doesn't create a chosen node if this isn't present in the DTB
since the decompressor relies on a pre-existing chosen node to be
available to insert the command line and merge other ATAGS info.
