AM43 SoC is in pre-silicon stage, meanwhile it has been modelled in
a pre-silicon platform. To validate and boot Linux in pre-silicon
platform that emulates an AM43 SoC, add DT build support.

Note: This would be replaced by an original board support.

- am335x-bone.dtb
+ am335x-bone.dtb \
+ am43-pre-silicon.dtb

Well the pre-silicon platform and the SOC are very
close and at least the support you are adding here is
exactly same. So lets just use am437x.dtb or something
like that.

SoC support is already added in patch 7/8. This is board (which doesn't
exist now) support, hence a pre-silicon temporary one to validate it.

I mean we can call it am437x-xyxboard.dtb already considering the data
here can be re-used. Boot-args can be used from default kernel config

No strong opinion if you still insist to have a pre-silicon dtb.
