ARM: Distro boot: document the need for fdtfile variable to be set

When testing builds provided in https://github.com/openwrt/openwrt/pull/3360


I discovered that fdtfile was not set and as a result the firmware was not
functional. So I am documenting what is needed.

A size of 1MB for the FDT/DTB seems reasonable.

Mandatory. the name of the DTB file for the specific board for instance
the espressobin v5 board the value is "marvell/armada-3720-espressobin.dtb"
while on a clearfog pro it is "armada-388-clearfog-pro.dtb" in the case of
a board providing its firmware based DTB this value can be used to override
the DTB with a different DTB. fdtfile will automatically be set for you if
it matches the format ${soc}-${board}.dtb which covers most 32 bit use cases.
AArch64 generally does not match as the Linux kernel put the dtb files under
SoC vendor directories.
