[meta-zephyr][PATCH 3/3] zephyr-flash-bossac.bbclass: Enable board flashing via bossac


Wojciech Zmuda
 

From: Nagesh Shamnur <nagesh.shamnur@huawei.com>

Currently only dfu and pyocd flashing are supported. Some boards
such as Arduino Nano 33 BLE can be flashed via bossac which is
released by Arduino repo. Find the installed Arudino version of
bossac and flash using that tool.
