lx-fdtdump dumps the flattened device tree passed to the kernel
from the bootloader to the filename specified as the command
argument. If no argument is provided it defaults to fdtdump.dtb.
This then allows further post processing on the machine running GDB.
The fdt header is also also printed in the GDB console. For example:

(gdb) lx-fdtdump
fdt_magic:         0xD00DFEED
fdt_totalsize:     0xC108
off_dt_struct:     0x38
off_dt_strings:    0x3804
off_mem_rsvmap:    0x28
version:           17
last_comp_version: 16
Dumped fdt to fdtdump.dtb

>fdtdump fdtdump.dtb | less


This command is useful as the bootloader can often re-write parts
of the device tree, and this can sometimes cause the kernel to not
boot.
