Is that needed for boot support? If it is only needed with UHS cards,
that does not seem important enough for me. We can already boot the
board via other means.

That is debatable, as it just increases the kernel size / build time for
everybody. Personally I would merge only things that are absolutely
necessary, for everything else we can just do local config modifications.
