core-imgae-base ---> VPU FW is included.
core-imgae-basic ---> VPU FW is not included. !!!!?

Does anyone understand why?

I know that the firmware is picked up in MACHINE_EXTRA_RRECOMMENDS variable
but I don't know why it affects only core-imgae-base and not
core-imgae-basic !

Hope someone could shed some light here.
core-image-base: A console-only image that fully supports the target
device hardware.
...
core-image-basic: A console-only image with more full-featured Linux
system functionality installed.

The image names are misleading, I agree. Please bring this to OE-Core
for discussion.
I sent a patch for this to OE-core in October which seems to have
been ignored :-(

BTW, the patch has been applied to OE-core master, but not the dora branch.
