Kbuild: Use dtc's -d (dependency) option
Stephen Warren [Mon, 9 Jan 2012 18:00:32 +0000 (11:00 -0700)]
This hooks dtc into Kbuild's dependency system.

Thus, for example, "make dtbs" will rebuild tegra-harmony.dtb if only
tegra20.dtsi has changed yet tegra-harmony.dts has not. The previous
lack of this feature recently caused me to have very confusing "git
bisect" results.

For ARM, it's obvious what to add to $(targets). I'm not familiar enough
with other architectures to know what to add there. Powerpc appears to
already add various .dtb files into $(targets), but the other archs may
need something added to $(targets) to work.
