Again, just because you can't find a use for that option does not mean it 
should be removed.

That's exactly why we have board-status. If you are using anything other than 
a pre-tested .config (and crossgcc), you are hacking, and that always comes 
with its associated set of risks. The fact that the majority of users are 
coreboot-impotent is not a reason to remove options.


P.S. Did I mention that linux has a billion times more options than we do?
