[PATCH] 10_linux: Add devicetree command, if a dtb is present.

From: Dimitri John Ledkov
Subject: [PATCH] 10_linux: Add devicetree command, if a dtb is present.
Date: Thu, 23 May 2019 22:31:13 +0100

Specifically support dtb paths as created by flash-kernel package on
Debian/Ubuntu systems, and a generic one. Possibly this needs to be
extended to support other devicetree blob paths as installed on other
distributions (similar to how multiple initrd paths are

This is particularly useful during new platforms bring up, which may
not yet be fully supported by Linux kernel. Currently I have tested
this patch, on top of Debian grub2 packaging/distro-patches to
successfully boot Asus Novago TP3700QL. Similarly other laptops would
find this useful, like Lenovo Mixx 630, Lenovo Yoga C630, and HP Envy
