One more thing, DM1 is a board level test. Those PCBs don't connect
LCM and use debug board to test all the DM1 test items. So far as I
know the DM1 process that remain by Nod. The factory still use those
DM1 process. Originally, he didn't make patches for those test commands.
Maybe they think that those test items are for factory side. For now,
if we change the DM1 process, that will cause another effort.
For now, the finish image process is done. Then we can quickly ready
our production software.
