in an init section in the image. Platform code *must* copy the
blob to non-init memory prior to calling unflatten_device_tree().
- Example:
- #arch/x86/platform/ce4100/Makefile
- clean-files := *dtb.S
+ To use this command, simply add *.dtb into obj-y or targets, or make
+ some other target depend on %.dtb
- DTC_FLAGS := -p 1024
- obj-y += foo.dtb.o
+ A central rule exists to create $(obj)/%.dtb from $(src)/%.dts;
+ architecture Makefiles do no need to explicitly write out that rule.

Sometimes, an external module uses exported symbols from
another external module. kbuild needs to have full knowledge of
