[U-Boot] [PATCH u-boot-marvell v2 14/15] arm: mvebu: turris_omnia: add RESET button handling

There is a Factory RESET button on the back side of the Turris Omnia
router. When user presses this button before powering the device up and
keeps it pressed, the microcontroller prevents the main CPU from booting
and counts how long the RESET button is being pressed (and indicates
this by lighting up front LEDs).

The idea behind this is that the user can boot the device into several
Factory RESET modes.

This patch adds support for U-Boot to read into which Factory RESET mode
the user booted the device. The value is an integer stored into the
omnia_reset environment variable. It is 0 if the button was not pressed
at all during power up, otherwise it is the number identifying the
Factory RESET mode.

This patch also adds support for configuring (via Kconfig) if the
bootcmd environment variable should be overwritten if this Factory RESET
button was pressed during device powerup, and if this configuration
option is enabled, the value by which bootcmd should be overwritten with
is also a configurable option. The default value sets the colors of all
the LEDs on the front panel to green, then loads the rescue system image
from the SPI flash memory and then boots it.
