The defconfig, at linux-imx-<version> is generated using the machine
config and calling make savedefconfig; so it should be the shorter
version and produce same .config as result of dependencies.
So the build system copy the defconfig onto .config, run "yes 'n' |
make oldconfig" and build the kernel.
You can sync the 12.09.01 branch and update the patch at:
As I did the trick of using sabrelite as fallback to nitrogen board
it will use those, except a nitrogen specific one is provided. I did
it to avoid duplicating things and easy maintenance.

It'd be nice indeed. Why they didn't like it?

So revert back to several images depending on SoC model?
