Hm, actually I do not want to have any file under custom/.  I know that
two files creeped in here, but I'd rather remove them than going even
further into this direction.

Apart from that, my repo doesn't even have a
"custom/rootfs_devices.tab".  The commit which introduced this feature
didn't have such a file - as it turns out correctly.

Is it ok if I apply only the Makefile + config/ part?
