Thanks, I found example in fdtgrep.
What do you think about function like:

static void print_usage(const char *msg)
	if (msg != NULL)
		fprintf(stderr, "Error: %s\n", msg);
	fprintf(stderr, "Usage: %s [-a <algo>] [-k <keydir>] [-n <keyname>] [-r <conf|image>] <fdt blob>\n"

		"\t-a <algo>       Cryptographic algorithm. Optional parameter, default: sha1,rsa2048\n"
		"\t-k <keydir>     Directory with public key. Optional parameter, default: .\n"
		"\t-n <keyname>    Public key name. Optional parameter, default: key\n"
		"\t-r <conf|image> Required: If present this indicates that the key must be verified for the image / configuration to be considered valid\n"
		"\t<fdt blob>      FDT blob file for adding of the public key. Required parameter.\n",

Is it ok?

Have a look at binman to see this full-blown - not a completely fair comparison as it benefits from Python argparse.
