How many board files are doing this? It is only worth generlizing if
there are a number of board files, all just pulling 6 bytes out from
the beginning of an MTD partition.

It is also normal to actually add a user of a new feature at the same
time as the new feature. It can be messy when it is across subsystem
boundaries, but please at least try.
