The existing arrangement is indeed a bit odd, but the real reason for this is 
the interaction with the preprocessor.  If a dtsi uses preprocessor 
directives, it needs to be included with #include rather than /include/, or 
else the dtsi won't be preprocessed.  However, if a dtsi is included with 
#include, and that dtsi is in fsl/ but the including dts isn't, any 
/include/s within the dtsi will not search that fsl/ because dtc doesn't 
realize that's the directory the content came from.

There was a desire to include <dt-bindings/thermal/thermal.h> from 
fsl/t1040si-post.dtsi.  In order to make everything work, we need to either 
move all relevant files to the same directory, or convert all /include/s in 
affected files to #include.
