If the SPL size (without the dtb appended) is larger then yes, the build fails.
Trouble is if the SPL (without the dtb appended) is, lets say, 63kB and
then the dtb is larger than 1kB. Then there is no mechanism in place to check that
and it will just fail to boot without giving any clues why. But this is a totally
unrelated problem from this patchset's point of view and I think it impacts all
the platforms that support SPL with DM.
