[meta-xilinx] microZed using meta-topic

So, with my ezynq build, it will generate a boot.bin and u-boot.img.

u-boot.img is just basically the stock xilinx u-boot. It *should* have all
the same functionality as the the standard u-boot. So, u-boot will should
be able to boot the fpga. I haven't tested it yet. boot.bin just loads
whatever is called u-boot.img on the card though, so if you just clone the
stock u-boot from Xilinx's git, you can just run it on the board. Ezynq is
only absolutely necessary for the boot.bin file.

The nice thing about the ezynq build it it doesn't require any xilinx tools
(like EDK or anything). It treats the boards configuration separately from
the fpga application.

I personally always load the fpga from userspace in linux using the xdevcfg
driver. I've also been working on making it so I can configure the clocks
for the fpga from linux so I can know the os/bootloader is truely separate
from the hdl design.

As a side node, I know the FPGA clocks are configured inside the PS
registers. Does anyone else know what subsystems an fpga design might
depend on? I want to make sure that *any* arbitrary design will run in
