Unlike other SoC platforms, rockchip platforms doesn't require a binary
generation on TF-A project.

This is due to rockchip platforms have non-continuous memory areas in
the linker script with a huge gap between them, so generating the binary
would require addition padding which indeed increases the size of the binary.

Interestingly this binary generation is disabled in v2.2 of TF-A on below
 commit <33218d2a8143> "rockchip: Disable binary generation for all SoCs."

Buildroot generally looks for a *.bin in the TF-A build directory but v2.2 is
not creating any bin since rk3399 (or rockchip) doesn't need bins, because of
which build fails.

This changeset checks for a *.bin in the respective TF-A build directory, if
available it copies to the output directory, otherwise skips copy.

This fixes the atf build on rk3399 with v2.2 and above.

Note: the same can be applied to rest of rockchip platforms if
they use v2.2 TF-A and above.

Changes for v4:
- no changes

Changes for v3:
- Based on suggestions from sergey and thomas, instead of encoding
  platform-specific stuff in config files, made changes in .mk files
  based on the build flow.
- Tested on roc-rk3399-pc, a rk3399 based target. Compile tested for orangepi 

Changes for v2:
- added Cc tag.

I'm sorry, but this is still not good. First, why checking for *.bin ?
The value of $(BR2_TARGET_ARM_TRUSTED_FIRMWARE_IMAGES) can be something
else ?

In your case, the solution is simple: define
BR2_TARGET_ARM_TRUSTED_FIRMWARE_IMAGES to the empty value in your
defconfig. This loop will then install nothing, which is what you want.

Best regards,
