[meta-freescale] Build error for directfb

Graphics team is aware of the DFB upgrade but graphics updates supporting new DFB version 1.7 won't be available until next alpha release after GA.  

I suggest for now we use older version of DFB in our meta-fsl-arm 1.6.3 from dora branch until graphics drivers are updated.

I did a brief look at this and the only solution I see at the moment is to break toolchain development for GL apps. We need to have this fixed at Vivante side to provide proper headers for GL so we stop to rely on mesa for it.

Another thing we will need to workaround for now is the ABI of the DirectFB backend as the binary driver works only with 1.6.3 release at the moment and OE-Core is already in 1.7.1 release.

 I sent those points for some Freescale people explaining it but didn't yet get an answer.
