Bug#884375: flash-kernel: ubootenv.d dropins silently ignored on Wandboard

Package: flash-kernel
Version: 3.88
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

Please consider applying the attached patch to make it possible
to extend the boot.scr on Wandboard.

(Adding 'cma=256M' to bootargs is the only remaining thing needed
for GNOME to work in Buster on Wandboard.)

Subject: [PATCH] Make ubootenv.d work on Wandboard

To enable graphics on wandboard you need to have contiguous memory
available, eg. pass cma=256M on the kernel command line.
Unfortunately dropping 'setenv bootargs ${bootargs} cma=256M'
into /etc/flash-kernel/ubootenv.d/cma currently doesn't work
because the bootscr.wandboard template doesn't contain the
needed @@UBOOT_ENV_EXTRA@@ marker for where to insert...
This change fixes the template so we can use ubootenv.d dropins
for wandboard.
