(note that in the case of kernel CI we currently use pure defconfig
What I asked deepti to work on is to make the CI hwpacks exported
through http://ci.linaro.org/kernel_hwpack/ to be better backtrack-able
to the actual CI job they are coming from.
Instead of exploding the hwpack name with more info, we could also
introduce a new directory level in the kernel_hwpack directory like:
... and then leave the hwpack names as they are now. Maybe
improve the version to rather use the git describe version of
the kernel tree and not the kind of meaningless timestamp.
