Sorry, but there are too mane "lite" boards already. We need  a  more
distinctive name.

If the Linux kernel tree uses RPXlite_DW, then this is what we should
use, too. I think it is a very good idea to use the same  name  when-
ever possible.

This can be done as two build targets, like  the  TQM823L_config  and

If possible, make it automatically detect  the  clock  frequency  and
auto-adjust.  Your  users  will  praise  you if the same binary image
works on both configurations.


Either make it a  different  build  targets,  or  select  a  standard
configuration  and  let  the  user  decide to modify the board config
