As the .dtb files will be naturally generated in the same kernel
folder as kernel image sits, why do not we ship .dtb in the same
folder as kernel image /boot?

The .dtb files will be generated and shipped with unique name, which
comes from .dts file name. But I intend to use the generic name,
maybe something like board.dtb along with l-m-c, just like we use
zImage and u-boot for all platforms in boot partition, so that l-m-c
does not need to encode platform specific dtb filename.
