On the contrary I think that the DCO check should be made after builds
as that usually forces users to add a sign-off just to bypass that check
if they want to sanity check their series.

Since the lack of a sign off can be effectively used as a mark for an
patch that is not ready to be pushed, but a build-check is still needed.
This adds a pointless hurdle in using the CI and also removes one of the
meaningful uses to have a sign off checker.
