kbuild: Don't assume dts files live in arch/*/boot/dts
In commit b40b25ff (kbuild: always run gcc -E on *.dts, remove cmd_dtc_cpp), dts building was changed to always use the C preprocessor. This meant that the .dts file passed to dtc is not the original, but the preprocessed one. When compiling with a separate build directory (i.e., with O=), this preprocessed file will not live in the same directory as the original. When the .dts file includes .dtsi files, dtc will look for them in the build directory, not in the source directory and compilation will fail. The commit referenced above tried to fix this by passing arch/*/boot/dts as an include path to dtc. However, for mips, the .dts files are not in this directory, so dts compilation on mips breaks for some targets. Instead of hardcoding this particular include path, this commit just uses the directory of the .dts file that is being compiled, which effectively restores the previous behaviour wrt includes. For most .dts files, this path is just the same as the previous hardcoded arch/*/boot/dts path. This was tested on a mips (rt3052) and an arm (bcm2835) target.
