I have no problem in this case. The configurations should be self 
contained and built vertically from a common base of basic information. 
For example rtems-base.bset has the RTEMS version, target, a package 
name and the RTEMS URLs. There is a GCC message which should move.

The way this change has been is done is an abuse of the layering. The 
change brings configuration specific details into all RTEMS packages and 
this is not how the RSB was designed.

The configurations have being linked laterally and this is something I 
did not want to see happen. It creates the potential for crosstalk. 
Specific information for a configuration should be locale to that file.

This type flattening of the layers is not done else where in the RSB and 
I do not want to see if else where either.

If a configuration is varying because of a single parameter we should 
look at why is happening and discuss if a better way can be found to 
manage it.

If you want a hash or group of hashes to shared, for example binutils 
then make a specific file and only include where it is needed.

Please remove the change for a common hashes file. Thank you.

It is up to you how you remove this, it would look better in the history 
to have this separated out.

Please do not make me revert the change. I do not wish to do this.
