Yes, we would all prefer mainline u-boot, but the mainline kernel needs
to support the vendor u-boot that is shipping with the boards. So
until Hardkernel (and other vendors) switch to mainline u-boot we do not
want to have upstream kernel defaults that will not boot with the vendor
u-boot.

We can always support these features, but they just cannot be enabled
by default.
