dm: core: Add an option to support SPL in read-only memory



Some systems (e.g. x86 APL) run SPL from read-only memory. The device
instances created by dtoc are therefore not writeable. To make things work
we would need to copy the devices to read/write memory.

To avoid this, add an option to use a separate runtime struct for devices,
just as is done for drivers. This can be used to hold information that
changes at runtime, avoiding the need for a copy.

Also add a Kconfig option for read-only SPL, which selects this feature.

section of memory. This means that of-platdata must make a copy (in
writeable memory) of anything it wants to modify, such as

For systems running SPL from read-only memory it is convenient to
separate out the runtime information, so that the devices don't need
to be copied before being used. This moves the read-write parts of
struct udevice (at present just the flags) into a separate struct,
which is allocated at runtime.
