Yes, because it is not a fix property of the board. It depends if
autoload is active and bootcmd is set on the board. The "mira" board has
not "bootcmd" set in default environment, and behavior is different just
after setting bootcmd.

Nice !

Do we have a repo for testcases with the new format ? I really
appreciate that new tbot has a clean split between software (tbot),
setup (boards and lab) and testcases. We have repos for the first two
cases, I cannot find a set of common tc. I mean, tc that are already
converted for @tbot.testcase - if not, I would start to write myself,
but I do not want to reinvent the wheel (and of course, I will do more

Thanks !
