dtbImage is not a buildable image. Neither is cuImage, treeImage or
simpleImage. All of those targets embed a device tree which is
specified by adding the .dts filename to the target name.

so, for example, 'make cuImage' fails. Instead you do 'make
cuImage.lite5200b' which pulls in dts/lite5200b.dts.

Also, zImage is a 'meta' target that builds all the default image
targets (the $image-y list). The zImage is actually just a symlink to
the first file in the list of default images. So zImage can actually
point to any kind of kernel image depending on how the kernel is
configured. I wonder if we should just remove the zImage file
entirely, or at least make it always linked to one particular image
