powerpc/fsl: add device tree binding for QE firmware
Define a binding for embedding a QE firmware blob into the device tree. Also define a new property for the QE node that links to a firmware node. Signed-off-by: Timur Tabi <timur@freescale.com> Signed-off-by: Grant Likely <grant.likely@secretlab.ca>

+* QE Firmware Node
+This node defines a firmware binary that is embedded in the device tree, for
+the purpose of passing the firmware from bootloader to the kernel, or from
+the hypervisor to the guest.
+The firmware node itself contains the firmware binary contents, a compatible
+property, and any firmware-specific properties. The node should be placed
+inside a QE node that needs it. Doing so eliminates the need for a
+fsl,firmware-phandle property. Other QE nodes that need the same firmware
+should define an fsl,firmware-phandle property that points to the firmware node
+in the first QE node.
+The fsl,firmware property can be specified in the DTS (possibly using incbin)
+or can be inserted by the boot loader at boot time.
+Required properties:
+ - compatible
+ Usage: required
+ Value type: <string>
+ Definition: A standard property. Specify a string that indicates what
+ kind of firmware it is. For QE, this should be "fsl,qe-firmware".
+ - fsl,firmware
+ Usage: required
+ Value type: <prop-encoded-array>, encoded as an array of bytes
+ Definition: A standard property. This property contains the firmware
+ binary "blob".
