I agree it is a possible way of doing it however I also think we
should opt for a safe route.

The Andrei's proposal make it harder to it to behave strangely so I
think it is a good option for long term. Another positive result of it
is that the new name makes clear we're not really using u-boot
mainline but mainline + patches. I support this change as it improves
the clearness for new users.
