Excellent. I feel compelled to chime in on behalf of buildrom. The
fewer files that we need to copy and/or modify from buildrom to
coreboot-v3 to get what we need, the happier we will be. If we find
ourselves constantly changing values in the dts or in Makefiles, then
that should be a really good clue that perhaps the value belongs in
Kconfig instead. I don't think anybody likes how we're doing configuration
now - I look forward to being able to copy a single .config file in
place, or, at the worst, being able to construct a single .config file
with the changes we need.
Please keep this in mind.
