I don't know if Debian, or any other distribution, ever implemented
it, but it was suggested that the install media read the available DT
blobs and present the user with a list they can choose from. I've no
idea if this was based on the blob filename, or if it read the
compatible string.

The Compatible string is also printed in the kernel log at boot. If it
is not unique, you need further information to figure out the blob
sources.

We probably needs Rob input. Are there other boards with multiple
blobs? Do they use the same or different compatible strings?
