Attached is a patch which does that. Did test builds of linux-libre on
x86_64-linux (no dtb files), aarch64-linux (dtb files in subdirs) and
armhf-linux (dtb files in one big huge directory); all of these variants
appear to be doing the right thing.

The patch basically follows the previous behavior by checking for the
presence of .dtb files, but rather than installing them manually,
invokes "make dtbs_install".

I did try to restrict dtb installation based on architecture (only arm,
arm64 and mips linux architectures currently implement the dtbs_install
Makefile target), which would seem a little cleaner to me. My attempt
was essentially:

  (if (string=? (getenv "ARCH") (or "arm" "arm64" "mips"))
    (invoke "make" "dtbs_install" ... )

Which somehow matched on all architectures... and so failed to build on
on x86_64.

Since the compile cycles were so long to test if it worked or not, I've
set it aside for now and decided to submit what I had working.

So, with the previous updated patch and the following patch, it should
be ready to go. Please feel free to squash them or merge them
separately; whatever makes the most sense. Or give more review and
feedback, of course. :)

live well,
