Ok but lets keep the #defines that control the FCC setup and put them into
the platform headers. If the defines are not present then they will default
to the "normal" configuration. Unfortunately with this method you are
required to modify each platform configuration file instead of having it
done as part of the configuration process. I am not sure which would be more
error prone.
