even if you remove uboot-envtools from the base image, due to the flash space
constraints for example, the user is still able to post-install this package,
so we can't probably base our decision on the content of DEFAULT_PACKAGES

> 3. Don't change. Leave it as it was set by the submitters

Probably this option unless we've strong reason to do otherwise.
