We share a lot of information among the two boards (mx28evk and
m28evk) and this ends duplicating some information, however I don't
think both are similar enough that end user won't be confused about
them. As you can see comparing both the mx28evk:

 * adds pins settings;
 * boards test revision;
 * drop NAND information;
 * fix references to the board;

Splitting it in two, or three files, will make harder for user to find
the need information; thus it seems better to have a small duplication
of this and easy end user finding.

I do think many boards has common stuff but splitting those details
too much ends up making hard to find the needed information.
