According to the commit log above, a previous
is removed in favor of am335x_evm_defconfig(AED)
However there is a am335x_boneblack_vboot_defconfig(ABVD) in the tree,
which is what I have failed with.
What does am335x_boneblack_vboot_defconfig(ABVD) do?
What is the meaning of "_vboot_"?
Is that "Verified Boot" as of
If so, do I need it?
