 Since indeed there is no convenient way to support two similar-but-different
boards with a single defconfigs, I've applied to master, thanks. I did make the
following changes though:
     - Bump to same kernel version as raspberrypi0.
     - Remove redundant comment.
     - Remove redundant default BR2_PACKAGE_RPI_FIRMWARE_INSTALL_DTB_OVERLAYS=y.
     - Improve commit log.
     - Refresh .gitlab-ci.yml.
