[PATCH 00/17] binman: Various tidy-ups and refactors

This series improves the implementation of the entry_Section class so that
it is easier to subclass it. It also updates the documentation in this
area and adds support for a few more types in the Fdt class.

Using this, the CBFS implementation is tidied up a bit, but is not yet
updated to use entry_Section as a base class. That needs a bit more work.

Still, this provides a better basis for new file formats.
