[fedora-arm] Fedora 29 new U-Boot/arm-trusted-firmware and Raspberry Pi firmware heads up

Hi All,

There's a new update headed to testing for Fedora 29. It makes some
adjustments to how we handle a few things, in particular the Raspberry
Pi firmware:

I don't expect anyone to see anything issues in particular especially
for the vast majority of people that just use a SD card or HDD with
their ARM device but there might be some corner cases for people with
slightly more esoteric setups when they upgrade. If anyone sees any
issues please open a bug [1] or reply to this or reach out on
#fedora-arm. The change has been in rawhide for a little while and
I've not seen any fall out there.

Also the new U-Boot will have some slight improvements for those
running AllWinner 64 bit devices as we've moved to the upstream ARM
trusted firmware. It's just a snapshot at the moment but the previous
fork was quite old and had it's issues on certain devices so I expect
this to be an overall win for people there, but again I can't test
everything so if anyone sees issues please reach out.

All please add karma to the above update when you do test it. People
can update U-Boot on a running system with the update-uboot command
with similar syntax to arm-image-installer.
