I'm lazy so I haven't checked myself, but by "latest dtc" does that
mean the DTC that's in the kernel now?

Things are going to be fun when we start saying generic things like
"latest DTC".  And when upstream DTC gets new features or enforcements,
we'll have to have all the in-kernel DTS files patched up when that
version of DTC gets merged in-kernel.  Just something to keep in mind
as we move along.
