To store uncompressed bl2 more space is required than partition is
actually defined.

There is currently no known usage of this reserved partition.
Openwrt uses same partition layout.

We added same change to u-boot with commit d7bb1099 [1].

If the bl2 does not fit into the bl2-partition (cut off), board does
not boot, thats why i want to increase it now. My current bl2 is 197K
for nor and i ran into this problem.

Openwrt uses also the first reserved partition to give bl2 more


so imho it should be same in mainline to not require complex bl2

have now sent the board-specific dts to uboot too:
