And what about files which are named dts right now? Do we call them
dts.dts (ugly) or .dts (hidden file)? Stripping a given file suffix in
dtc before creating the struct name is easy.

struct name autocreation is a feature I really like.

v3 has a few perceived problems and a few real problems. The problem is
