I have another similar patch adding other device support, also with 
skeleton...
One possible solution could be directory per device containing ONLY 
specific and custom files to particular device. Some script should copy 
these files to output rootfs directory after copying default skeleton 
files (rewriting existing ones if needed). In this case, default 
skeleton would be the same for all devices.
What do you think about such idea?
