Well it's just a branch of omap legacy booting related patches
for v4.8. But looking at it now, looks like I already pushed out the
removal of the last two remaining board files before I took few weeks
off. But I did not add it to Linux next to keep things working
until -rc1.

OK. As I've already pushed out the board-*.c removal branch, I
suggest we just drop the $subject patch to avoid a merge conflict.
