It's a bit odd to drop these.

Indeed, here you are precisely saying that fw_printenv is needed. What
about keeping the selects *and* adding your Config.in comment, perhaps
without the "uboot-tools must be selected". It would be nice to have
some more specific reference to the Mender U-Boot patches.

What about selecting BR2_PACKAGE_MENDER_GRUBENV then when
BR2_TARGET_GRUB is enabled?
