Ideally, it will become some automatic "as small as possible" 
configuration. Unfortunately ld doesn't allow to align everything to an 
upper boundary, so this requires the link-twice trick or so.
So for now, I'd like to keep it there - people might want to tweak it. 
As an example (which made me look into this in the first place), someone 
(agaran) on #coreboot wanted to use a smaller bootblock. Until this 
automatically happens, we'll have to allow this to change.

kconfig is just as good as any place in my opinion.
