I have been wondering if we should add yet another device tree
directory for kernel DTs that are not yet in the kernel, e.g.
common/boards/dts. Then we can place full DTs there, remove them
once they are in dts/ and clean up arch/$ARCH/dts/ that way.

Usually, when someone notices. Having them in a single directory
as suggested above may make it easier to sport no longer needed DTs.
