Well, it may make sense to use common defconfig files for  boards  of
the same breed (different configurations of one board family from one
vendor  for  example).  But  please  note  that  TQM5200,  CM5200 and
Motion-PRO are boards from 3 different  vendors,  used  by  different
projects  with  differing  needs.  IMO  it  makes  very much sense to
provide 3 separate default configurations  that  match  the  specific
requirements of each of these boards.

In this case I vote for separate defconfig files, please.

Best regards,
