Sorry for the long delay getting back to you about this. We discussed
this patch at the Düsseldorf Buildroot Meeting, and it was decided that
it was not the effort supporting generating FIT images directly in
* Depending on whether you want a FIT image that bundles your
kernel+DTB and sits in your filesystem, or a FIT image that
actually bundles your filesystem, it would have to be generated at a
completely different time (first case should be handled as a normal
Buildroot package, second case more as a filesystem image).
* It's all about calling a single mkimage command, which can easily be
enabled for the host in the "Host utilities" menu of Buildroot, and
then called from either a post-build or a post-image script
depending on your use-case.
Therefore, we've decided to mark your patch as 'Rejected' in patchwork.
Thanks nonetheless for your contribution!
