Hmm, for a PC-like setup I would choose a standard debian. For a
RasPi with e.g. touchscreen hat I would be happy to just use a letux
system. And remember, someone presented a raspi phone at Fosdem in that

The bottom line of the discussion about that on LKML is that enabling
symbols for all dtb files is not wanted but to enable it on request for
individual files. You can set flags per file.

The usually used bootloader configs for these shield/hat capable boards
look in directories for overlays. So maybe it would be a good idea to
enable it so that people simply can copy in their overlays from other
sources into a letux system without touching the kernel. Well
to some extent, overlays are also working without symbols.
