Just had a discussion with developers working on Cubox-I support. They 
tried to push MXC SPL support for the CuBox-i upstream, didn't work out 
so far. Otavio suggested to use mainline without SPL for now, but I am 
skeptical about it. SPL is a very nice feature, it allows me to use the 
exact same installation for several Cubox-i machines.

The way I see it, there are two options for me:
1) Use the u-boot fork with MXC SPL support for now, until mainline 
supports MXC SPL. Then immediately switch to mainline by applying a 
patch to meta-fsl-arm-extra.
2) Use mainline without SPL, and live with the fact that I need a build 
for every single CuBox-i machine.

I personally favor (1), especially since it is already fully working for 
me. I could send the patches to the mailing list after a little cleanup. 
You seem to favor (2), since mainline is usually a better choice than 
some odd fork (I agree on this in principle, but in this case, I favor 
the fork).
