Ok, another alternative indeed. 

Before we should decide the technical implementation, 
what do we want to achieve, what are our requirements to the system?

* configure cmos options defaults with make menuconfig

* have one single prominent place (per mainboard?) for those options?

* inherit options? Options per component? Like superio serial 0/1 on/off
  should be set in cmos instead of dts or compile time?

* simple format for describing the options

* have a tool that creates an "option_table" format file as we have it
  now, so we can easily use all the existing code for now 
  (get_option(...), linuxbios table, lxbios utility....)

* what else...?
