Allow vial config to be done at a keyboard level

2 votes

Currently to support vial with a keyboard the following needs to be done
- Add VIAL_KEYBOARD_UID to the config.h in the keymap folder
- Add vial.json to the keymap folder

What would be nice to have is to be able to add a keyboard variant that contains both the vial.json and config.h.

For example currently when you've got 2 keymaps supporting VIAL it look like this.
This would require the vial.json and config.h to be created 2 times
