Well, using (almost) pure upstream is the idea I believe. And the thing is they
want to use a single multi-platform image which should be as small as possible
in size. So it won't have any drivers or platform stuff (if possible) and
everything is module.

I am not sure about arm32/64 thing though. And it is okay if you don't want to
care about Google right now. That was just some side knowledge I had :)
