Hi,Basically, releasing the kernel as source is sufficient. But if we
release it as binary only for the specific reference board, users may be happy.
+++ Kernel featuresTo reduce the maintenance effort, we should limit drivers and features
to be supported (`support' in this context means tracking security/critical
bug fixes, backporting requested patches, and so on).
One idea is to express the supported features in the form of kernel
config. It is machine-readable, and it's not so difficult to covert
it to human-readable. But I'm not sure if it actually work well because
there are non-configurable features.
