The feature list is a non-standard alternative to the device tree
to pass the hardware description to the kernel.
This is the way used by Archos on it's android kernel, so it's required
to boot such a kernel.
This patch is submitted with two intentions:
1) receive feedback
2) request for inclusion
The feedback is always appreciated.
Regarding inclusion, I know this is a very Archos specific patch, so I'll
understand if it's rejected.
