Bruce, do not create this branch. Baytrail will be fully supported
upstream, we cannot have a branch called "baytrail" containing the
equivalent of a vendor tree". These branches, if they exist at all,
should be for specific boards that for some very special cases need
patches which are not acceptable upstream. This should be approaching
zero for Intel hardware.
We will work with Rebecca to come up with an acceptable solution.
