Devicetree overlays, with a fixed dtb specification representing the pins
on EOMA68.  An I2C EEPROM contains the id which allows uboot to pick the
correct dtb overlay.

It was discussed years ago as dtb overlays were still in the conceptual
phase. Last time I checked nobody had thought about *disconnecting*
overlays. The assumption was, you plug in a braindead 96boards to a shield,
boot, and under no circumtances remove the shield.

They clearly forgot that even on a beagleboard or braindeaf 96board,
uswsusp can be installed.
