memtool allows one to read and write memory mapped registers via /dev/mem. The
commands are inspired by the respective commands of the barebox bootloader.
This is handy during driver development to inspect and modify register
settings. It can also be used to modify regular files and character devices
(e.g. to paint to /dev/fb0).
