Yes. GNU make will only include the file if it _exists_.

Since originally there are only definitions like zreladdr defined in
and with AUTO_ZRELADDR, some platforms do not need this definition any
more, which makes Makefile.boot useless on these platforms. Yet it does now
look like Makefile.boot is so far the best place for these DTB rules.
