I'm struggling against this, I don't really know how to proceed,
except keeping monolithic dts files including other dtsi files.

About dt-overlays I've tried to look around lot of time,
but the only thing I've found is this:
https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/geert/renesas-drivers.git/tree/arch/arm/boot/dts?h=topic/renesas-overlays

where they use .dtso tagging them as "/plugin/;"
and compile all .dtso found in dts folder.
Then they obtain .dtbo files that should be the dt-overlays we have
spoken about right?

What I can't understand is if there's a real standard at this time to
follow, because on renesas-driver they use their way to handle all .dtso
files, but on mainline there seems to be nothing about that.

So at the moment I'm trying to compile dts tagged as /plugin/;
but dtc gives me a lot of warnings.

dts:
"
/dts-v1/;
/plugin/;

#include <dt-bindings/gpio/gpio.h>
#include <dt-bindings/interrupt-controller/irq.h>

&i2c2 {
pinctrl-names = "default";
pinctrl-0 = <&i2c2_pins_a>;
status = "okay";

ft5x {
compatible = "edt,edt-ft5306";
reg = <0x38>;
interrupt-parent = <&pio>;
interrupts = <7 2 IRQ_TYPE_EDGE_FALLING>; /* PH2 */
reset-gpios = <&pio 7 3 GPIO_ACTIVE_LOW>; /* PH3 */
touchscreen-size-x = <480>;
touchscreen-size-y = <272>;
};
};
"

Build output issuing make ARCH=arm CROSS_COMPILE=arm-linux- aaa.dtb (I
use aaa.dts as source):
"
arch/arm/boot/dts/aaa.dtb: Warning (reg_format):
/fragment@0/__overlay__/ft5x:reg: property has invalid length (4 bytes)
(#address-cells == 2, #size-cells == 1)
arch/arm/boot/dts/aaa.dtb: Warning (pci_device_bus_num): Failed

arch/arm/boot/dts/aaa.dtb: Warning (simple_bus_reg): Failed prerequisite

arch/arm/boot/dts/aaa.dtb: Warning (avoid_default_addr_size):
/fragment@0/__overlay__/ft5x: Relying on default #size-cells value
"

Then in uboot I'm trying to do as follows:
# fdt addr 0x43000000 (where dtb is)
# fdt resize 8192
# fdt apply 0x430c0000 (where dtbo is)
But it gives me "libfdt fdt_check_header(): FDT_ERR_BADMAGIC"
(I was expecting some error)

Is there anywhere a guide for this?
Is this what you've meant before?
Using FIT for my use is not the best, so I would like to have many
overlays in /boot folder and use different boot.scr depending on hardware.

Can you point me to somewhere or something?
I don't really know where to beat my head!

Thanks in advance.
