In fact I think the board we have at meta-fsl-arm ought to work just
fine. I am unsure we need another board as I have added the wifi
firmware there too and Eric has tested it.

Eric, can you comment on this?

Not yet. That's why I included u-boot-boundary recipe.

Yes, I think we can have it in same machine except if there're real
difference between them.

I did not compare the patches but I think it should be the same we
have for sabrelite; in this case we can use overrides to avoid the
duplication (again, done in nitrogen6x board in extra repository).

Eric, please give us some light about the board difference?
