Hm, probably yet another copy-paste occurance in our tree, the
cmos.layout got copied and never enabled or so. Anyway, we should
fix this in another patch by (IMHO) making one or two "generic"
cmos.layout files which boards without special needs can use.

I estimate that 80% or so of all those files are identical and/or
blindly copy-pasted. Those boards that _do_ need a differing cmos.layout
should have their own custom file, but the "don't care" rest of the
boards can then use a global/common one.

Thanks, r4669. I manually tested the board via menuconfig.
