configs/macchiatobin*: drop vendor defconfig, rename mainline defconfig
The support for MacchiatoBin board in U-Boot and Linux has been significantly improved in the past years. So it no longer makes much sense to have a separate build configuration based on older vendor Linux kernel and U-Boot. This commit drops the configuration based on vendor kernel and U-Boot and renames the mainline-based defconfig.

How to build
-There are two build options: mainline support and vendor support.
+Default configuration provides the following BSP versions:
+ - Linux v5.6.3 (mainline)
+ - U-Boot v2020.01 (mainline)
+ - ATF v1.5-18.12.2 (Marvell)
-For the mainline BSP, we use:
- - Linux v4.19.2
- - U-Boot v2018.11
+To build images run the following commands:
-For the vendor BSP, we use the sources available from Marvell Github
-page at https://github.com/MarvellEmbeddedProcessors, which uses:
- - Linux v4.4.120
- - U-Boot v2018.03
-At the moment mainline support for the board is a work in
-progress. Mainline kernel 4.19 enables eth2 in 1Gb (RJ45 connector J5),
-copper 10Gb interfaces, and automatic configuration of select SFP
-modules on the SFP cages. The vendor BSP enables more hardware features
-out of the box, but lacks support for SFP detection and automatic
-To use the mainline BSP run the following commands:
- $ make solidrun_macchiatobin_mainline_defconfig
- $ make
-To use the vendor BSP run the following commands:
- $ make solidrun_macchiatobin_marvell_defconfig
+ $ make solidrun_macchiatobin_defconfig
