[Buildroot] [PATCH 1/4] configs/amarula_vyasa_rk3288: adjust U-Boot config to boot larger kernel image

Default value of CONFIG_SYS_BOOTM_LEN in u-boot causes board reset for
large uImage files, so add u-boot patch to increase the maximum kernel
image size.

+
+The default value of CONFIG_SYS_BOOTM_LEN is 0x800000 i.e, 8MB which
+causes board reset because of larger uImage size.
