common: state: Add property to protect existing data
After an update to a newer barebox version with an enabled state framework, existing data in storage memories could be overwritten. Add a new property to check in front of every write task, if the meta magic field only contains the magic number, zeros or ones. Signed-off-by: Daniel Schultz <> Signed-off-by: Sascha Hauer <>
