Add bootmode override support for ZynqMP devices. Allows one to select

This kinda looks a bit misuse of reboot mode support.

Usually you are signal with reboot-mode that you want to do factory reset, enter recovery mode or such things.

Now this signaling here is telling that this is used for selecting from what device to boot from.

On the ZynqMP this is the only way to communicate with the ROM.

Another problem is that this now modifies all Xilinx Zynq MPSoCs which is kinda wrong. This behavior should really be product/board specific and not common for all boards -- undoing this in product/board is somewhat cumbersome.

The boot mode setting is in the SOC, and is not board specific. The ROM interprets this field. The only board specific thing is that you may not actually have a NAND chip attached to it.

My idea was that a board could easily add say 'mode-recovery=<0x2100>;' to make the QPSI boot the method of recovery. The bootloader also has access to this register, so it can see that there was a boot mode override in effect.

Now this change hijacks the "reboot <arg>" with this behavior which is not so nice.

If anyone has a better suggestion as to where this should go, I'd be more than happy to hear about it. It's the only interface that I could find in the kernel to attach a bootmode override to.
