You're right, the commit is doing more than just adding the
manufacturer. I thought that I could group such small changes but I
forgot to add them to the commit title/message.

I'm proposing to remove the development part to make the title
consistent with all devices on the zynq target. The all are
development/trainer/evaluation boards.
My opinion is that using the manufacturer and the model is enough to
uniquely identify a device, and additional information belongs on the
wiki, as it doesn't help to identify a device on menuconfig. We can
even remove the "board" part of their title (with the same argument).
Look at the "Compex WPJ428", "QCA AP-DK01.1-C1" and "QCA AP-DK04.1-C1"
from the ipq40xx target, or the "BeagleBone" from the omap target.
They are a mix of development boards, reference designs, and embedded
boards, but none of that information is on their title.
Additionally, only 4 OpenWRT "devices" have the word "development" on
their title, and around 20 the word "reference".

Having said that, I really care about the manufacturer being added to
the title, and for consistency reasons, I propose one of these
1: Remove the development part (modify 2 boards, this patch)
2: Remove the development board part (modify 4 boards, new patch)
3: Add the development/trainer/evaluation part (modify 2 boards, new patch)

I'm now more inclined to go for option 2 and drop everything that's
not part of the manufacturer and model, as the "board" part is not
adding meaningful information from a developer point of view, IMHO.

I'll wait for your reply before sending a V2.
