This PR solves the cross-compiling problem for at least one devicetree overlays (as discussed in the discourse thread), so from my side it would make sense to merge it. (Right now using it with a local checkout that is rebased onto master).

Is this still a problem? So far, I've successfully cross-compiled device tree overlays (not with the _rpi kernel), but for a Pine64 on the mainline kernel.

@CRTified CRTified commented Jan 18, 2021

@flokli I think this is still a problem. I did not have time to test it again, but if I recall correctly the problem was relatively specific to the RPi zero (so armv6). I don't have time right now to test it again, but as the file changed by this PR did not change on master, I'd suspect that the problem also exists.

It should be simple to test whether this problem is gone, as I've provided a minimal working example config in the discourse referenced above. I'll see if I find some time today to run it against master and report back.
