expr isn't a builtin, right? So we don't need to worry about dash vs
bash for it and whether the ":" operator is implemented.
Another possibility would be to search /etc/flash-kernel/dtbs (perhaps
with and without $kvers) before /usr/lib/blah.
I suppose you are needing to use flash-kernel's dtb appending mode,
otherwise you could just drop the file in /boot.
