Bug#767744: flash-kernel: There is no way to specify a custom dtb

Package: flash-kernel
Version: 3.28
Severity: wishlist


I want to use flash-kernel on a machine that uses a device tree blob that isn't
included in the kernel package. So flash-kernel's assumption to find
/usr/lib/linux-image-$kvers/$dtb_id is wrong.

Maybe something like:

	# if dtb_name starts with / assume it's a stand alone file. Otherwise
	# pick the one shipped by the linux image.
	if expr "$dtb_name" : "/" >/dev/null; then

would work?

Best regards
