In order to achieve reproducible builds in U-Boot, timestamps that are defined
at build-time have to be somewhat eliminated. The SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH environment
variable allows setting a fixed value for those timestamps.

Simply by setting SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH to a fixed value, a number of targets can be
built reproducibly. This is the case for e.g. sunxi devices.

However, some other devices might need some more tweaks, especially regarding
the image generation tools.

Heiko, since this is based on your original patch, feel free to do the

I am just on the jump into my holidays, so I have not yet the time
to test it ... I want to try it for all builds with the scripts
I posted with my v2 ... but a first fast look into your patch looks
nice, if it works, it is ok with me ... I am back aprox. july 5th.

maybe a README entry would be fine ;-)



It would be nice to have this tested on as many boards as possible to
spot other areas that make the binaries not reproducible. However, I
doubt this patch will evolve much and other fixes should be sent in
subsequent patches.
