[Letux-kernel] Patch suggestion make targz-pkg

Hi everybody,

During my occasional episodes of building and deploying the kernel on
the gta04, I have found that the build system has the nice feature,
make tar*-pkg,
which creates a tarball of the kernel image and all modules, so all I
have to do after a build or rebuild is
tar -C /mnt/sdcard -xpf linux-4.10.0-letux+-arm.tar.gz

However it currently does not include any arm-specific targets such as
DeviceTree blobs and the compressed zImage.
Furthermore the tarred modules are not stripped. Sometimes I would like
them stripped, and sometimes I wouldn't.

So I have proposed 2 patches that add zImage and dtbs to that tarball.
Please let me know your opinions if this is something that we should try
to mainline.
