    ihex: add support for CS:IP/EIP records · 2473238e
    Mark Brown authored
    ihex firmwares can include a jump address for starting execution.  Add a
    -j option which will cause this to be written into the generated file as a
    record with address zero and data consisting of the address to jump to,
    allowing drivers to make use of this information.
    This format is chosen because it most closely follows the original ihex
    format, though it may make more sense to write a record with length zero
    and the address stored as the address.  The records are not omitted by
    default since our ihex format does not include record type information and
    so including additional records may lead to confusion.
