This would normally be handled by you/someone doing:

make ARCH=arm savedefconfig
mv defconfig arch/arm/configs/bcm2708_defconfig
git add arch/arm/configs/bcm2708_defconfig
git commit

That way, everyone else can just run:

make ARCH=arm bcm2708_defconfig

to reproduce your configuration. Plus, when you add new features, you
just update that file and check it in, and there's little need to
communicate the change to anyway; it just magically works when they git

That said, I imagine the reason my attempts to get rpi-linear booting
failed was due to the bootloader not filling in the mem or bootargs
properties; I should go back and try again now that I figured that out...
