I'm OK with what these patches want to achieve. I had several patches 
prepared for similar purposes in sunxi (apart from the new image 
building code), but were never finalized due to responsibilities 
elsewhere, as one of the "obvious reasons" mentioned earlier (by Daniel 
IIRC). Whether you are merging these into trunk before or after your 
release and/or the merge, is obviously at your discretion.

Having said that, if such major target reworks happen, and we seem to be 
geared towards a merge, it would be appreciated if you cc the 
openwrt-devel list so people over there would be aware.
