A board has to select CONFIG_USE_COMPRESSED_DTB either directly or
through arch specific options when it uses compressed dtbs. This is
easily forgotten. barebox compiles fine, but during runtime the
decompression code is missing and barebox won't start. As this happens
in the PBL possibly without output this may be unnecessarily hard to

Make sure compilation fails when a board uses compressed dtbs but
