Yes, this should be good enough. You will probabaly need to tweak
some of the other kernel configs settings though, for the differences
between the LE-362 hardware and the real Epia board.

The default Via/EPIA config option for
# CONFIG_USER_BOOTTOOLS_FLASHLOADER is not set
is disabled. You may want to investigate how this got turned on, and
make sure all the other options are set to the real defaults.

as86, and a small number of other very-common or rarely-used tools
aren't included in the snapgear toolchains.
you can just use the normal as86 from your host system.
