Yeah, it's a bit hacky.

But I don't like the weird spreading-out of bootloader installers as
opposed to bootloader packages either.  It would be nicest if upstream
just included installation scripts :P

How the board will boot depends *only* on the Sytem-On-a-Chip in use -
for example all the Allwinner sunxi chips boot the same way.

Usually it's just what the vendor decided to use years (decades) ago
and it stays the same over many many chip generations.
