    dtc: Rework handling of boot_cpuid_phys
    Currently, dtc will put the nonsense value 0xfeedbeef into the
    boot_cpuid_phys field of an output blob, unless explicitly given
    another value with the -b command line option.  As well as being a
    totally unuseful default value, this also means that dtc won't
    properly preserve the boot_cpuid_phys field in -I dtb -O dtb mode.
    This patch reworks things to improve the boot_cpuid handling.  The new
    semantics are that the output's boot_cpuid_phys value is:
        the value given on the command line if -b is used
        the value from the input, if in -I dtb mode
    Implementation-wise we do the following:
        - boot_cpuid_phys is added to struct boot_info, so that
    structure now contains all of the blob's semantic information.
        - dt_to_blob() and dt_to_asm() output the cpuid given in
        - dt_from_blob() fills in boot_info based on the input blob
        - The other dt_from_*() functions just record 0, but we can
    change this easily if e.g. we invent a way of specifying the boot cpu
    in the source format.
        - main() overrides the cpuid in the boot_info between input
    and output if -b is given
    We add some testcases to check this new behaviour.
