u-boot.dtb is an ancient leftover that we haven't bothered to remove yet
(or, rather, I think it might actually be gone from the latest boards...
try a Kevin image). IIRC it actually contains the coreboot config or
something weird? Anyway, red herring.

Not much documentation unfortunately, in part because it keeps changing too
often to be worth documenting. Your best bet is to just look at the ebuild
sources directly:


Hope you like portage, because that's all we have! ;)
