I can see where this concept is useful.  What I would like to see is
updating the ENV_IS_IN_FAT / ENV_IS_IN_EXT4 / ENV_IS_ANYWHERE so that we
end up with:
  - Configured device, part, file.
  - Optional specify device, otherwise help for the option describes the
    logic behind how U-Boot will iterate until it finds something.
