I haven't look at the patch yet, but is my understanding correct that
you have individual config options enabling the various board support
and that you allow more than one to be selected at one time ?

If that is the case, then that's great. It's also what the arm ach does
and I like it.

Great ! Looks like you have more time than I do to spend on this. I'll
look at your patch and eventually get it merged asap.
