So do you want to remove this line if you only want one .mk file? Do we
want to make a new variable CONFIG_TINY that downloads the tiny patches for
the KERNEL_VERSION we've selected? Once we go that far is there any reason
to have board-specific .mk files for the kernel at all? That would be nice
from my perspective (many of the boards can/do use the same kernel
versions), but it is a major change.
