Thanks for reviewing the patch.
I like your idea of having a single kernel which can boot on any board
However, based on our customer's feedback so far, we prefer to keep it separate
Also since IDT's processors are SoC's and do undergo various rev's for the chips,

I see a lot of duplicated code, esp in arch/mips/idt-boards and the network drivers.
Is it possible to have a kernel capable of booting on all IDT boards? Could such a kernel detect what board it's actually running on - or enough elements of the board configuration to provide more generic drivers?
