I wasn't aware of this neither. Shall we re-license existing DTS files
as well? I'm fine with changing them to BSD compatible.

I'm a bit confused by using BSD license only. Kernel is licensed under
GNU GPL version 2 and if there are some BSD compatible modules, they
use dual licensing model (BSD/GPL). Shouldn't we use BSD/GPL in DTS
files as well then?
