I guessed omapconf example is coming though Keystone has no such tool
yet ;-). Opentest shouldn't need that info either.

I do agree that having a soc along with board is useful in
longer run to accommodation more boards and variants.
And only on that merit, I am willing to take these patches.

Please refresh the series commit messages based on the
discussion so far and repost. Will pick it up then.
