Re: [RFC] Mezzanine/Hat/Extension/Shield board support

Hi Neil,+1 for me too. This would really be handy in long range.
Obviously, one point to solve is how to deal with pinmuxing. I see at least 3 options:
a) Keep board independant pinmuxing, and up to each board to present pinmuxing(s)
compatible with required shield(s)
b) Define generic pinmuxing profiles(arduino_pinmux for instance). Then boards and
shields would include these profiles (when compatible)
c) Shield activation (with EXTBOARD=..) would configure board pinmux on the fly
In any case, boards should provide a "compatible" field at some point to document
the supported shields (or pinmux profiles).
