these should never be put into the .c file (e.g. version.c) since this 
code compiles for 50 or so mainboards.

Rather they should be defined in src/mainboard/via/epia/Config and I have 
added defines. 

I would much prefer that these variables be created by the pathname of the 
mainboard, but there may be a reason to do it otherwise.

that's weird. But there have been several changes lately so we'll have to 
do some looking around. Andrew, are you seeing this?
