    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
