Pardon my silly question. I know that there's an effort to reconcile the
two different SoCs so you're picking a neutral name, but what does
"mvebu" mean, and will you be persistently keeping this name? Our guys
want to know what this new platform will entail for Fedora support in
terms of the platform name being used in various non-kernel places.
