> Document SRC_GPR10 PERSIST_SECONDARY_BOOT functionality. This is useful for
> reliable bootloader A/B updates, as it permits switching between two copies
> of bootloader at different offsets of the same storage. The switch happens
> in case one copy is corrupted OR can be enforced by user. This functionality
> is present at least since i.MX53, however is poorly documented in all known
> SoC datasheets, hence this document aims to clarify the usage, currently on
> i.MX7D and i.MX8MM.
