That's a very good point.  Anything we do inside of the kernel with
cputable/features must be generic to all of the boards we support.  If
there is something unique (which is always the case of embedded boards :-),
that needs to be done in the bootloader before we get to the kernel or
in the board specific setup files for the platform.
