I am working on adding support for our upcoming 'XBurst' board into
OpenWrt [1]. Sources are here [2].

In addition to all the stuff that targets the device, I have a reflashing tool
running on the host. This tool can boot the device over USB and reflash it.
It's called 'usbboot' and part of a package called 'xburst-tools' (the CPU
is an XBurst (MIPS-compatible) CPU).
Sources for that package are here [3].

Now, in the OpenWrt there is a directory 'tools' at the root level. Should I
create a subfolder (+Makefile etc) for xburst-tools inside there?
However, the tool depends on my target.
Is the 'tools' directory only for target-independent host tools?

Another possible place would be in target/linux/xburst. But I see no host
tools in any of the other targets, so I'm not sure it's a good place.

Any help appreciated, thanks!
