Well, to start with, all #include'd files could go into a
arch/dts/include directory. That would clean things up a bit.

We could also consider separating the dts files by ISA. All armv7 in
one directory, armv8, armv5te, powerpc, mips, etc. Since multiplatform
kernels would only support one of those directories, it would make build
products easier:

$ make multi_v7_defconfig && make dtbs
$ fancy_script.sh zImage arch/dts/armv7/*.dtb

Just a thought, I'm still not sold that the churn is worth it.

thx,

Jason.
