I suggest you go with your own distro then, as you can leverage the
DISTRO_FEATURES in it yourself. You can either take any of 'fsl-'
prefixed distros over 'poky' if you need some NXP proprietary
components (e.g. VPU, GPU, etc), or take any of 'fslc-' prefixed ones
if you want to stay with mainline. Please note - I do not say that
'poky' would not work here! :) It is just a reference distro from
Yocto Project, which targets qemu on the first place, but also works
well for real HW.
This is the way we build our distro (derived from 'fsl-wayland'), and
so far it has proven to be working quite well. I also do sanity build
and run the 'fsl-wayland' off the master on imx8mmevk to make sure
there are no regressions.
You can see what distro features you have included when you do
'bitbake -e' and search for DISTRO_FEATURES. If you have (and
according to what you say - you do :) ) some pieces you do not need -
you can always either not include them in your custom distro, or use
DISTRO_FEATURES_remove = "<unneeded list>".
Those distros are located in a meta-freescale-distro layer, you can
peek there to see what's available.
