I discussed this with Olof in the last version. In the ARM version, I
could have done just one line "dtb-$(CONFIG_OF_ALL_DTBS) += $(dtb-)"
to add all the disabled dtbs. On arm64, I would have to do that for
each sub-dir Makefile as well as make sure any new sub-dirs have this
line. In the end, I also prefer to build everything in the tree and
not rely on the dtbs to be explicitly listed.
