2016.4 PetaLinux:​ FIT image generation is failing if the user selects initrd in petalinux-config.

Description

FIT image generation is failing if the user selects initrd in petalinux-config. 

The FIT image was generated using cpio.gz, it is not present in initrd selection.

Solution

The FIT image requires rootfs.cpio.gz. This file is generated for initramfs only.

To resolve this issue, add the following to build/conf/local.conf:

IMAGE_FSTYPES_append = " cpio.gz"
