I'm not sure what example code you mean. No additional code is necessary
for U-Boot to perform the measurements, only the requirements stated. If
you mean the operating system setup, I don't think here is the right
place to document that, as it has nothing to do with U-Boot. Either way,
Linux would not require any code, only a similar devicetree entry and
