I don't see you building them anywhere, they aren't added to the
Makefile ever. What am I missing ?

actually none of the dtso's were added to any makefile in that branch.

Anyway, the DTC needs to know how to treat the dtso format and it will
error out currently with unknown format kind of errors.

Below email [1] have some information on the kind of changes required
here. Also note that we had to do similar changes for dtbo earlier
[2].
