[OpenWrt-Devel] [RFC] x86: use multiple profiles

Hi all,

the x86 been recently reworked (cb007a7bf6) and now it is easily possible to
define multiple profiles. Currently only a `generic` profile is offered which
builds mbr and efi grub images with a standard selection of packages (common
device drivers).

I'd suggest to have multiple profiles for common x86 devices, including the
correct drivers. An example is the APU2 board, which requires additional kmods
to shine[0].

A first split could be to have mbr and efi images separated and the APU2 board.

Please share your opinions.
