On recent make, commit 1449fb96, "arm/dt: Add a make rule to build
dtb for enabled boards" breaks build of the kernel immediately:

/projects/linaro/linux-2.6/arch/arm/Makefile:292: *** mixed implicit
and normal rules.  Stop.

> $ rpm -q make
> make-3.82-4.fc15.x86_64
> ''The previous behavior of mixing implicit and pattern rules in one line
> like that was never supported or documented, but due to a "hole" in the
> parser it worked for certain specific cases (for example, reversing that
> line so the pattern comes first would not work, nor would adding extra
> explicit targets after the pattern target).
> In 3.82, the parser was tightened in this respect and that "hole" was
> closed, hence you see this error.''

This patch splits the rule to fix the bug.
