I have no idea.

Parsing DTS with sed or something would be possible, but ugly.

In my opinion, the kernel should be multi platform image,
in other words, it is the least common denominator
of supported platforms.

So, the kernel should enable all features that may or may not be used
depending on platform.

I do not know if this works for MB.
