So now we're avoiding new dependencies. :-)

It was more of an annoyance in internal development as we were
frequently changing the device tree to configure device assignment and
such.  For mainline QEMU the long-term plan should be to get rid of the
static device tree entirely, and to avoid doing configuration that way
in the first place, so it's not that big of a deal to keep both .dts and
.dtb around until then.
