Is it worth being a bit proactive and getting rid of some of them in
advance? Things like spear30_defconfig are basically identically
except for the board type. Combining all three of those would remove
1500 lines of code.
Basically reduce down to one or two defconfigs for each mach directory
which include as many boards and drivers as possible. People wanting
more tailored configs can do that in their own trees.
