For instance, you can have a common routine that prints a welcome For instance, you can have a common routine that prints a welcome
message that is used by two programs a and b. You would add common.o message that is used by two programs a and b. You would add common.o
to COBJS and your target line would read: to COBJS:
TARGETS := a b
COBJS are made for each board --- so it is ok to have board specific
code in there. As an example, tests uses this to print which board you
are running.

change your GPIO mappings between boards.
