Comment (by Chris Johns):

 Replying to [comment:2 Sebastian Huber]:
 > Should we add the U-Boot mkimage to the RTEMS tools? It is GPL software.

 No. The RSB is fine, maybe a `rtems/config/bsps/qoriq` build set could be
 added which builds everything for the user of the BSP including uboot.

 You could see if you can craft a configure test to detect the tool then
 update the build rule. This would allow those who do not have the tool to
 build and regression test building.

 I also suggest you provide instructions in the Wiki under
 https://devel.rtems.org/wiki/Boards on how to get and build uboot, create
 images etc.

 I see any post rules or stages as a wasted effort, even the size command.
 This should be handled outside of RTEMS. It is difficult to handle
