    dtbsinstall: don't move target directory out of the way · 5399eb9b
    Russell King authored
    No other kernel installation target moves the target directory out of
    the way, even deleting an old version of it.  These are destructive
    operations, ones which the kernel build system should not be making.
    
    This behaviour prevents being able to do:
    
    	make install INSTALL_PATH=/some/path/boot
    	make dtbs_install INSTALL_DTBS_PATH=/some/path/boot
    
    As it causes the boot directory containing the kernel installed in
    step 1 to be moved to /some/path/boot.old.  Things get even more fun
    if you do:
    
    	make install dtbs_install INSTALL_PATH=/some/path/boot INSTALL_DTBS_PATH=/some/path/boot
    
    The kernel gets installed into /some/path/boot, then the directory gets
    renamed to /some/path/boot.old, and a new directory created to hold the
    dtbs.  Even more fun if you supply -j2 when we end up with races in
    make.
    
    Remove this behaviour.
    
    If this behaviour is required at installation time, this should be
    done by the installation external to the kernel makefiles, just like
    it would be done for 'make modules_install'.
