Before this patch, you should see processed-schema.yaml built first.
Clean your tree and do:

make -j8 ARCH=arm
DT_SCHEMA_FILES=Documentation/devicetree/bindings/gpu/arm,mali-midgard.yaml
dt_binding_check

Building processed-schema.yaml will fail because it will be empty as
the 1 file included had an error.
