So my take on that is that it seems like it's simpler to just have the
core selection since that's just one option for the user to choose and
save all the space for whatever device they're not interested in rather
than having to go through individual drivers disabling the boring SoCs.
It seems more straightfoward from a UI point of view but perhaps I'm not
thinking about it from the right angle?
