rockchip: add option to change method of loading u-boot

If we would like to boot from SD card, we have to implement mmc driver
in SPL stage, and get a slightly large SPL binary. Rockchip SoC's
bootrom code has the ability to load spl and u-boot, then boot.

If CONFIG_ROCKCHIP_SPL_BACK_TO_BROM is enabled, the spl will return to
bootrom in board_init_f(), then bootrom loads u-boot binary.

Loading sequence after rework:
bootrom ==> spl ==> bootrom ==> u-boot

Rockchip SoCs have ability to load SPL & U-Boot binary. If enabled,
SPL will return to the boot rom, which will then load the U-Boot
binary to keep going on.

The rockchip bootrom can load and boot an initial spl, then continue to
load a second-level bootloader(ie. U-BOOT) as soon as it returns to bootrom.
Therefore RK3288 has another loading sequence like RK3036. The option of
U-Boot is controlled with this setting in U-Boot:
You can create the image via the following operations:
./firefly-rk3288/tools/mkimage -n rk3288 -T rksd -d \
firefly-rk3288/spl/u-boot-spl-dtb.bin out && \
cat firefly-rk3288/u-boot-dtb.bin >> out && \
sudo dd if=out of=/dev/sdc seek=64
