As the OLPC btest and rev_a GX2 targets were only prototypes that never
went in to production i am fine with removing them.
Another option might be to include the 3 different SPD tables and make a
kconfig option to chose the DRAM type.
If there is interest i could try integrate that in my patch.

How do others think about it?
