Well... I was thinking that I'd just push this one, since it has a much
bigger impact than the patches we made to flow control and error

I think I was a bit mistaken though. I didn't catch that this line was 
itself in a patch file:
	+# CONFIG_FEC_NAPI is not set

I also didn't catch and don't quite understand how the defconfig file
is applied in the build process. Is 'nitrogen6x_defconfig' even used?

I don't see CONFIG_FEC in the defconfig. Does that file somehow get
applied on top of a base configuration to apply Yocto specifics?

There are some things in our boundary-L3.0.35_12.09.01_GA tree that
I was hoping to clean up before submitting

In particular, we set things up to allow a single image to boot on
Quad->Solo that the Freescale team didn't like, so we'll probably
revert it as we migrate to the 2012-10 branch, which will take a
couple of weeks.

I'm not really sure how to proceed.

Please advise,
