DTS has no considerable advantages over the current sconfig, but it was
much more complicated.
I think we should stick to that format until we have something worthwhile.

I agree an sconfig version in C would make sense because right now on my
build host almost 50% of the build time goes into the configuration step.

When we're out of Kconfig + CBFS + Normal/Fallback firefighting mode, we
should reconsider our options here. Until then, every minute of work is
best spent on bringing over the remaining 50% of the mainboards to Kconfig.
