Ok sorry. I thought that sending all the series would give more information.

Let's take Kernel boot at example (but could be extend to other DTB
"users" like U-Boot). When Linux kernel booting we get a log that gives
useful information about kernel image: source version, build date,
people who built the kernel image, compiler version. This information is
useful for debug and support. The aim is to get same kind of information
but for the DTB.

My first idea was to not modify all existing .dts files. Adding an extra
option in dtc is (for me) the softer way to do it. I mean, compile
information should come through compiler without modify .dts files
outside from dtc. In this way it will be easy to everybody using dtc
(inside our outside Linux tree) to add dtb build info (even if they
don't how to write a dts file).

Yes I agree but something like "dtb-info" would be better as this
property can be added when dtb is built for Linux but also for U-Boot.

Ok. To fix.

I will try with data_copy_file(). Thanks.
