The way I understand, POST_PROCESS flag is enabled by default if we
enable TI_SECURE_DEV option, spl can parse signed images if POST_PROCESS
flag is enabled.

If we enable POST_PROCESS flag seperately without enabling TI_SECURE
flag, GP spl should be able to parse signed
images, but that is not defined in current am64 defconfig.

That flag is enabled in am62x defconfig, that is able to parse signed
u-boot without TI_SECURE_DEV enabled.

That was actually one of my concern, if there is no TI_SECURE_DEV
enabled, don't generate signed images at all in binman flow, because
they won't work.

But going forward as we are planning to not have new devices with GP, we
can ignore this thing.

I got your point though, I'll just go ahead and send seperate patch for
enabling TI_SECURE_DEV and the fix for generating tispl.bin for GP
