sys/conf/files should have declarations.
sys/conf/std should have configurations.
They have completely different scope.

In this case, all "options ATHHAL_FOO" in
should be added into each config file where ath is there,
as well as "options VERIFILED_EXEC_FOO" for veriexec(4).

Of cource it's a bit silly, so it may be better to propose
a new generic common name (other than "std") for such
common "options" or other configurations for common MI devices.
(sun3 has arch/sun3/conf/obio.sun3 for example)

We need such common files for MI usb(4) etc.
