Obsolete build_opt_tbl by moving its functionality to nvramtool (that's
WIP here), define a new format (eg. the one on Infrastructure_Projects)
and implement that in nvramtool with both reader and writer. Then read
all cmos.layout files and write in their new form.

Not exactly "easy", but automated.

Infrastructure_Projects :-)
I'd like to move nvram variables to where they are used (eg. multi_core
to AMD CPUs).
