Use configurations "GTA02" for GTA02 HW, "GTA01" for GTA01 HW. sounds current kernel
source does so.

But I don't know if GTA0X support both GTA01, GTA02 and GTA03.
In my opinion, it's really NOT necessary for embedded device to
configure "GTAXX" to support all kind of platforms.

I think module is much more convenient. and easy to replace or upgrade.
a) It can keep kernel much more compact. 
b) We don't have to flash kernel again and again, just minor bug fixes.

Why NOT write a Debug/Rlease Kernel update wiki pages for setting up
proper environment, if u-boot can't figure out the kernel image size
