That's not enough, because some board names match the beginning of
other supported board names (for example AW8 and AW8D.) So the algorithm
must really compare both strings on a
That's a little more code, but still not rocket science, and that's the
only safe way.
(Actually, no, there's a second way: put the abituguru3_motherboards
entries in a clever order. But that could break easily, so I wouldn't
