> For arm64 we want to put dts files into vendor's subdirectories from
> the beginning. This patch set implements this. As this is a generic
> kbuild implementation, vendor subdirs will be also available for
> arch/arm and other architectures. The subdirectory tree is also
> reflected in the install path.
> A new makefile variable dts-dirs is introduced to point to dts
> subdirs. This variable is used by kbuild for building and installation
> of dtb files.
> A dts Makefile looks now as follows:
> ----
> dtb-$(CONFIG_...) += some_file_1.dtb
> dtb-$(CONFIG_...) += some_file_2.dtb
> dts-dirs          += dir_vendor_a
> dts-dirs          += dir_vendor_b
> # come always afterwards:
> always         := $(dtb-y)
> subdir-y       := $(dts-dirs)
> clean-files    := *.dtb
> ----
> This patches also introduces the dtbs_install make target for
> arm64. Install rules are moved to Makefile.dtbinst using the same
> style and calling convention like for modinst and fwinst.
> Robert Richter (6):
>   dts, arm64: Add dtbs_install make target
>   dts, kbuild: Factor out dtbs install rules to Makefile.dtbinst
>   dts, arm/arm64: Remove dtbs build rules in sub-makes
>   dts, kbuild: Implement support for dtb vendor subdirs
>   dts, arm64: Move dts files to vendor subdirs
>   dts, arm: Remove $(MACHINE) variable from dtbs make recipes

I've tested this for arm64 and by adding a vendor sub-directory
locally for arm.  This series is also the base for my MIPS DT vendor
sub-directory series
So, for the entire series,
