feat(plat/imx8m): add SiP call for secondary boot
In iMX8MM it is possible to have two copies of bootloader in
SD/eMMC and switch between them. The switch is triggered either
by the BootROM in case the bootloader image is faulty OR can be
enforced by the user. To trigger that switch the
PERSIST_SECONDARY_BOOT bit should be set in GPR10 SRC register.
As the bit is retained after WARM reset, that permits to control
BootROM behavior regarding what boot image it will boot after
reset: primary or secondary.
This is useful for reliable bootloader A/B updates, as it permits
switching between two copies of bootloader at different offsets of
the same storage.
If the PERSIST_SECONDARY_BOOT is 0, the boot ROM uses address
0x8400 for the primary image. If the PERSIST_SECONDARY_BOOT is 1,
the boot ROM reads that secondary image table from address 0x8200
on the boot media and uses the address specified in the table for
the secondary image.
Secondary Image Table contains the sector of secondary bootloader
image, exluding the offset to that image (explained below in the
note). To generate the Secondary Image Table, use e.g.:
$ printf '\x0\x0\x0\x0\x0\x0\x0\x0\x33\x22\x11'
$ hexdump -vC /tmp/sit.bin
00000000 00 00 00 00
00000004 00 00 00 00
00000008 33 22 11 00 <--- This is the "tag"
0000000c 00 10 00 00 <--- This is the "firstSectorNumber"
00000010 00 00 00 00
You can also use NXP script from  imx-mkimage tool for
SIT generation. Note that the firstSectorNumber is NOT the offset
of the IVT, but an offset of the IVT decremented by Image Vector
Table offset (Table 6-25. Image Vector Table Offset and Initial
Load Region Size for iMX8MM/MQ), so for secondary SPL copy at
offset 0x1042 sectors, firstSectorNumber must be 0x1000
(0x42 sectors * 512 = 0x8400 bytes offset).
In order to test redundant boot board should be closed and
SD/MMC manufacture mode disabled, as secondary boot is not
supported in the SD/MMC manufacture mode, which can be disabled
by blowing DISABLE_SDMMC_MFG (example for iMX8MM):
> fuse prog -y 2 1 0x00800000
