Well, what alternative solution is there? The upgrade path is already
blocked today for rpi3, rpi2 and rpi for lack of sdhci-iproc. And I am
trying to close a bug here:

We could add both drivers to add_drivers for raspberrypi3_aarch64 for
futureproofness - that should not regress then. But supposedly without
the omit_drivers there were probing issues. I can leave that commented
out, but that's no full solution for the bug in the current image then.

Also FTR I have repeatedly said that in order to update these config
files we should put them in a package; but you Alex were against that,
saying they were just temporary hacks and shouldn't need to exist at
all. We need to die one death or another! Either people need to manually
tweak the configs from time to time, or we can't just throw them into
the JeOS package.
