Someone needs to do the work and commit to maintain it. You essentially need:

 - add the board in meta-fsl-arm-extra
 - update Release Notes
 - has someone as maintainer

all this can be done by the vendor or 3rd party.

The FSL Community BSP project is a community project so no costs
involved. You can add the board yourself and send it for review.

The commitment is for maintenance and testing. That's why we demand a
maintainer for every board now. So you (or whoever is the maintainer)
is expected to pay attention to the mailing list, support your users
and keep regular testing of stable and development branches and
someone to fix board specific stuff.
