[PATCH u-boot v2019.04-aspeed-openbmc 0/2] Store default u-boot env in

This patch adds the u-boot environment to the u-boot binary, and a build
fix for the new configuration that I have also sent upstream.

We currently rely on the default environment being populated in the
image. This has the downside that if something corrupts the environment,
the system won't know how to boot itself.

The ast2600_openbmc_mmc.txt is copied from

The downside of this approach is we would need to keep the files in
sync, or change the yocto tooling so the in-flash environment is
generated from this copy.

Please respond with your thoughts on this approach.
