Can you elaborate on the above? I have been [I think] successfully using poky+meta-ti
to support internal platform based on DM8148 and DM3730 - meta-ti is the best choice
for a kernel "jumping off point" for these platforms. So far, I've only
had to make a scant few tweaks to get this combo to work, in particular:

* In conf/local.conf, I use this to avoid parsing problems with some meta-ti
recipes (none of which I need at the moment)
# Ignore troublesome TI recipes
BBMASK = ".*/meta-ti/recipes-misc/"

* In distro.conf (I do have my own distro, but it's very close to poky), I needed
# Allow hardware overrides, e.g. armv7a

With these minor additions, I've been able to use the meta-ti layer for [some]
kernel work, u-boot, DSP support, etc - all the stuff one expects the layer
to provide.

I know my setup is a bit outside pure poky+meta-ti, but it does show that
you don't actually have to have Angstrom to use meta-ti.

It would be nice to understand what your concerns are, certainly the details
of your two "Today,..." statements above, if they fall outside what I've outlined

Clearly, the README is meant for the new people, who might find it too
complicated for the above fixes to be applied in order for them to avoid using
Angstrom. But you are correct, besides known isues with gcc-4.6 not working
for some components and hence requiring meta-oe; SOC_FAMILY and systemd
dependency in recipes-misc/images were the only other two things requiring
meta-angstrom layer.

You can try the updated meta-ti now, as it should solve those dependencies,
thanks to Koen's latest patches. Please let us know how it works for you.
