Aaah, yes, indeed. Thanks for spotting/detecting that.

Agreed, Eugen and Nicolas: it would really be better to have a proper
LICENSE file in your repo. Please add it to both the 3.x branch and the
4.x branch :-)

Aah, yes, well spotted. I think we should ask the contributor of these
defconfigs to use a fixed version of AT91Bootstrap, because that's
normally what we do for bootloader/kernel versions in defconfigs.
