From: Dirk Brandewie <>

add generic rules for building and linking the DTB's into vmlinux.

Patch 2 adds the command line option, the functions for the
platform code to retrieve the value passed in and locate the matching
blob in the image. This patch has been tested on x86.

Patch 3-5 show using the generic dts->dtb rule in x86, microblaze and
powerpc. The microblaze and powerpc patches have only been compile
