Comment (by Chris Johns):

 The post link process is badly defined and implemented inconsistently in
 the BSPs that supported it. I suspect it is only of use in a limited
 number of cases and in specific use cases for some hardware
 configurations. The data in the .cfg files is important and should be kept
 until we can find a suitable way to export the important details to all
 application build systems.

 I do not think I have used the `bin2boot` method of booting a PC and
 current use the standard ELF file our link process generates via the iPXE
 boot loader that is loaded by a BIOS PXE loader. All this stuff is widely
 available, clearly documented and supported.
