[PATCH] ARM: Kconfig: fix example for ARM_APPENDED_DTB

Help message for config ARM_APPENDED_DTB suggests following example to
append dtb to zImage:

cat zImage <filename>.dtb > zImage_w_dtb

and that makes unaware user wondering why Linux doesn't boot.

So fix example with ">>". Unfortunately, the same example is present in
message to commit e2a6a3aafa98 ("ARM: zImage: Allow the appending of a
device tree binary").

 	  With this option, the boot code will look for a device tree binary
