I'm okay with dropping the imx6qsabrelite.conf file.

There is another vendor producing boards "to the SABRE Lite design",
but I think even they are best served by using our kernel and

The Freescale kernel team is still making updates to SABRE Lite in
the kernel tree, but we're pulling them into the nitrogen6x/sabre lite
board file and configuration fairly quickly.

Fabio and the Freescale U-Boot team are also maintaining updates
to the mx6qsabrelite board files, but I don't know whether anybody
is actually using it. The README file has a big hack to over-ride

But I don't think Linaro is active with i.MX6 at the moment.
