Nope, all that is really needed is the remote and refspec , all of which
is in the git request-pull output. All I really ever do with the DFU PR
is $ git fetch u-boot-dfu ; <inspect the refspec> ; git merge <refspec>
and this operation doesn't involve booting the web browser :)

Nope, I see it used, still.

Being able to download fitImage with various fragments of update and
apply them with single command is convenient, I would dislike to lose
that functionality. I don't think using $preboot is in any way a
replacement of this.

This one is rather isolated.

So just move the update_tftp patches to next, because they need more
