did you have CONFIG_USE_OPTION_TABLE before? If not you potentially have
changed all settings. The defaults in the cmos.default file don't have
to be the same defaults that are hardcoded in the code and the file only
takes effect if CONFIG_USE_OPTION_TABLE is set. As I looked at the SATA
code, I know the AHCI setting is one that definitely differs.

That's a thing that could easily be improved. Check all the options and
their defaults in the source code and agree on one single reasonable

Yes, all DDR3L should be 1.5V compatible. I'm fairly confused that such
a board has a 1.35V option, though.
