If CONFIG_OF_ALL_DTBS is enabled, "make ARCH=arm64 dtbs" compiles each
DTB twice; one from arch/arm64/boot/dts/*/Makefile and the other from
the dtb-$(CONFIG_OF_ALL_DTBS) line in arch/arm64/boot/dts/Makefile.
It could be a race problem when building DTBS in parallel.

Another minor issue is CONFIG_OF_ALL_DTBS covers only *.dts in vendor
sub-directories, so this broke when Broadcom added one more hierarchy
in arch/arm64/boot/dts/broadcom/<soc>/.

One idea to fix the issues in a clean way is to move DTB handling
to Kbuild core scripts.  Makefile.dtbinst already recognizes dtb-y
natively, so it should not hurt to do so.

Add $(dtb-y) to extra-y, and $(dtb-) as well if CONFIG_OF_ALL_DTBS is
enabled.  All clutter things in Makefiles go away.

As a bonus clean-up, I also removed dts-dirs.  Just use subdir-y
directly to traverse sub-directories.

Hi Masahiro

Nice cleanup - looks good.

I noticed a few of these dummy.o in the patched files.
Looks like another candidate for cleaning up - in a separate patch.

Nice, that's much better than the hack I had.

I applied this, but it has a few conflicts with SPDX tags from Greg
and some board additions in arm-soc. Please take a look.

I wonder if that should be CONFIG_BUILTIN_DTB?

This is causing failures in linux-next with MIPS
cavium_octeon_defconfig like below, and changing this line to
CONFIG_BUILTIN_DTB seems to fix it.

arch/mips/cavium-octeon/setup.o: In function `__octeon_is_model_runtime__':
/work/mips/linux/main/./arch/mips/include/asm/octeon/octeon-model.h:368:

Good catch!


Rob,
Can you fix it to CONFIG_BUILTIN_DTB?

Thanks!
