SubjectRe: [PATCH] kbuild: Handle builtin dtb files containing hyphens
From
Date
I initially misread the patch description (and imagined an entirely
different problem).

Please replace the following section:

with:

cmd_dt_S_dtb constructs the assembly source to incorporate a devicetree
FDT (that is, the .dtb file) as binary data in the kernel image.
This assembly source contains labels before and after the binary data.
The label names incorporate the file name of the corresponding .dtb
file. Hyphens are not legal characters in labels, so transform all
hyphens from the file name to underscores when constructing the labels.
