That's pretty minor -- can you just use the overo model as is?
I bet nothing at the software level cares that much about the
OMAP version or NAND manufacturer...

I appreciate the patch. My pushback is really that every new board
we accept carries an implicit future cost for testing/maintenance/etc,
so there needs to be a reasonable set of users who would use this
and not the overo or beagle.

We've just changed recently to asking people to include the "or later"
clause for new code (this is why, as you note, there are some existing
bits of code which are v2-only).
