Depending on when we expect this binman series to go in should guide
how we handle this. My hope is that this can go into -next very
soon, but that would still mean it won't hit master branch until

Fixing the issue Kamlesh describes below in time for v2023.07
would be my preference then (if Tom is willing to take it as a fix
for v2023.07 that is). I know this fix will be unneeded once
this binman series goes in so it feels like throw away work,
but I don't want AM64x HS-FS broken until v2023.10 :(

Are you sure about these two above statements? SPL should be able to
parse signed FIT images on GP with or without TI_SECURE_DEV.

That would be the better solution, if GP cannot use tispl.bin_HS
currently then the tispl.bin generation fix should go first, then this
patch, then the rest of binman changes can go in after (next cycle).
