Yes, as I posted in another thread, the MTD, UBI are all set in my
Linux kernel defconfig, I have also added UBOOT_CONFIG = "nand" in my
layer machine config.
What I missed is u-boot overlay, as you and Andy alluded. I added
UBOOT_CONFIG[nand] += "mx6ull_14x14_evk_nand_config", but strange
enough, that mx6ull_14x14_evk_nand_config, did not set CONFIG_CMD_UBI
in its config.

Sorry, I never tried that approach. 

I think I need to add an appended recipes-bsp to my layer just like I
added the recipes-kernel to my layer to overwrite kernel defconfig, I
need to overwrite u-boot defconfig.

In kernel, to overwrite defconfig, I run bitbake -c menuconfig
virtual/kernel, how can I generate u-boot defconfig, to run bitbake -c
menuconfig u-boot?
As far as I know uboot (usually virtual/bootloader) does not have a task to run menuconfig directly from bitbake.
I usually have a local clone of uboot and I simply run `make [...] menuconfig|savedefconfig` , then I create a patch
to add my defconfig (custom_defconfig) to configs/ and specify UBOOT_MACHINE = "custom_defconfig"

Thank you.

Kind regards,
