Factory has add some test code in the u-boot and has different 
configuration for modules.

For example, factory u-boot default GSM power is ON, so they could 
download GSM frimware and at final station write IMEI. Also they have 
different default value in USB charging/power testing item.

Again, any change in production software need extra verification with 
current test item and test plan in factory.
