That's why I am fixing the problem.

Before the fix, the parallel build fails.


/usr/bin/mkimage: Can't read arch/microblaze/boot/linux.bin: Invalid argument
arch/microblaze/boot/Makefile:14: recipe for target
'arch/microblaze/boot/linux.bin.ub' failed
make[1]: *** [arch/microblaze/boot/linux.bin.ub] Error 1
make[1]: *** Deleting file 'arch/microblaze/boot/linux.bin.ub'
arch/microblaze/Makefile:87: recipe for target 'linux.bin.ub' failed
make: *** [linux.bin.ub] Error 2
make: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....
MODPOST 6 modules
Kernel: arch/microblaze/boot/linux.bin is ready (#2)

This is intentional to avoid a race in
"make simpleImage.<dt> linux.bin.ub"


But, I chose to make simpleImage* independent of linux.bin* in v2.

I hope you will like it.
