The patch series was based on Linus's tree at the time I sent it; that 
file was added in commit 9931be2cfca3 ("dt-bindings: watchdog: 
aspeed-wdt: Add aspeed,reset-mask property"), which was included in the 
6.7-rc1 tag, FWIW.

After some debugging I discovered that the reason I wasn't getting any 
output from dtbs_check was that I had neglected to specify ARCH=arm when 
invoking it, and when that defaulted to x86 it silently did a whole 
bunch of nothing.  It might be nice if something emitted some sort of 
warning when invoked with nonsensical parameters (especially if I've 
explicitly specified a dtstree=... argument pointing to arch/arm/...), 
but oh well.

After re-running it with ARCH=arm, it produced a fairly voluminous spew 
of output, though after combing through it all as best I can tell only 
one or two lines of it actually pertain to the .dts in question itself 
(the vast majority being from a .dtsi it #includes).  I've fixed the one 
remaining issue it reported (missing #address-cells and #size-cells on 
the FRU eeprom node) and will post a v2 in the next few days (and 
likewise on the spc621d8hm3 series).
