I still doubt  is this a right  work-flow for patch apply. Before we  
apply  a patch  which will break many other boards , should we  make 
sure there is a solution patch applied for these boars first?

For technical side, I think CONFIG_ROCKCHIP_BOOT_MODE_REG is necessary 
here, we will read this register from save_boot_params when we get out 
from bootrom,  the dtb is not available at this point.

On the other hand, almost rockchip based products use a recovery key to 
enter download(upgrade)mode, this is a muti-funtion key, most of them 
reuse with vol+- key,  we would like the u-boot share

dtb with linux kernel. To keep the linux kernel dts as clean as possible 
,we don't want to add another dts property to describe this key either. 
This is why I implement function rockchip_dnl_key_pressed as __weak.
