    sysdev/kernel: DT: Drop a superfluous slide about DT customization
    Besides the fact that DT is useful for declaring the hardware and its
    integration, this slide gives details about:
    - the pin muxing which will be addressed later
    - the tanzilli tool which is rather useless
    - the flash partitions which really are an implementation detail (and
      now is legacy and must be kept)
    - the command line which has already been addressed
    - a talk given by Thomas which is also mentioned later in the slides.
    Add an item to the previous slide just not to loose too much information
    and simply drop that slide entirely.
