I think this is fine. Of course, we get less confident about the
comparison between the two build systems. But, without someone
actively engaged in verifying them, I think at some point we need to
just start to move on.

I currently lack time, hopefully in Dec I can revisit. I have a
t2080rdb I want to get set up and may be able to test both old/new
build systems.

It will be good to keep bsps building with the old build system until
we kill it off. Especially the BBB (and other common test targets). So
your analysis is spot on.
