[As discussed on IRC, summarising for the list archive.]

For the user-visible menu that's sensible enough - the issue is more

individual board entry rather than having the board build machinery say
"I need the SSI controller" or similar.

It's not the submitting individual patches that I was meaning, it's the
fact that individual patches cover multiple issues.
