My apologies - I totally misread this patch. Indeed, it does not replace
DoubleShot by SingleShot board, but adds yet another dts option. In this
case readme.txt needs an update. Besides, another extlinux menu entry
can be added, probably with some notes in readme.txt on how to select
default boot option.
