Yes. Given that I haven't found any that didn't build, that alone is
probably not so important. There's also an effort to move DT binding
docs to YAML, and I'm using dtc to dump out binding information to
automatically populate the binding docs hence I need to build all.
Eventually, we also plan to use the binding docs to validate dts

Yes, I've tested powerpc.

Okay, I'll drop it (it should already be set).

dtbs target is building in boot/dts. I just noticed that %.dtb targets
(or dtbImage.% targets) still build in boot/. I need to move them to
boot/dts/ as well to align with all other arches. This clean should
probably stay so dtbs get cleaned in either location.

obj-y will build the dtb into the kernel which some arches do and not
what we want here.
