If this is the artifact name that u-boot expects then the
arm-trusted-firmware recipe should create a deployed symlink with that
name as well.

Yes, the new fun that has begun. The PMU Firmware is to be a hard
dependency for the next release (at least that is what I heard) of
u-boot-xlnx/linux-xlnx and probably ATF as well.

I have been looking at getting meta-xilinx to build the PMU firmware,
however since it is actually firmware that runs on a baremetal (with
dep on newlib) microblaze it is not quite so straight forward. There
are some WIP branches of oe-core and meta-xilinx where I have the
firmware building from the github.com/Xilinx/embeddedsw repo. Feel
free to play around with it, without hardware its hard to be sure its
fully functional but it was working with u-boot-xlnx on the zcu102
emulated with qemu-xilinx:


At the moment you need to build the firmware separately using the
"zynqmp-pmu-microblaze" MACHINE, with bitbake pmu-firmware, and the
.elf will be in the deploy dir for that machine. Thought I am not sure
of the boot process for SPL with regards to how the pmu-firmware is
actually loaded.

On a side note, in your first email you changed the UBOOT_MACHINE to
"xilinx_zynqmp_zcu102_rev1.0_defconfig", just wanted to query what
revision of the zcu102 you have.
