I am trying to build the mfgtool initramfs and mfgtool kernel from the pyro
branch.

I created my repo by doing this:

$ mkdir fsl-community-bsp-pyro && cd fsl-community-bsp-pyro/
$ repo init -u https://github.com/Freescale/fsl-community-bsp-platform -b
pyro && repo sync && repo start pyro --all
$ MACHINE=imx6ulevk DISTRO=fslc-framebuffer SDKMACHINE=x86_64 source
setup-environment build-evk

Then, because I need a bit of customization, before I do "bitbake
fsl-image-mfgtool-initramfs", I do:
$ bitbake -c menuconfig mfgtool-linux-imx
... which fails:

Is this supposed to work? How do I fix this? What is this strange dependency
that is not present? morty seems to work, as well as the official
fsl-arm-yocto-bsp imx-4.1.15_1.0.0-ga branch from NXP.
I think this has been broken for awhile and is caused by the MLPREFIX
variable being set to "mfgtool-" in linux-mfgtool.inc.

I was able to get around this issue by just removing the:

e.data.setVar("MLPREFIX", "mfgtool-")

line from linux-mfgtool.inc. Pretty hacky... but it seems to work, I
was able to compile the kernel and get mfgtool going. I think the
right solution would be to use the KERNEL_PACAKGE_NAME which is now
available in sumo...
