It is a step in that direction, but by far not the final solution. For your
case: Yes, if your lab-config defines a
def poweron(self, name: str) -> None:
You could call it like that from your board config.

Both! If your machine is U-Boot
with tbot.acquire_uboot(b) as ub:
ub.env("bootcmd", "bootm $loadaddr"
will set a U-Boot variable and if your machine is Linux
with tbot.acquire_lab() as lh:
will set an Environment Variable.

Personally I prefer no logfile by default, because you just end up with lots and
lots of logfiles in randon locations, that you probably won't ever take a look at ...
