All right, defconfig and patching is pretty easy, I suppose I can
write my do_hack_image() hook function similar to do_compulab_image(),
but I'm not sure how would I override do_deploy() and do_install()
only for this machine.
Perhaps this is a wrong approach - I am overriding those because I
want to put the kernel in an unusual place (/) under an unusual name
(kernel.2x00). This is necessary for this machine to boot. do_deploy()
is an obvious candidate to be merged with do_hack_image()
Any insight and suggestions is welcome.
