I just did that (bitbake meta-toolchain + install script) and I can get u-boot to build without errors but the u-boot.bin is not booting on the target.

>I even use a sfp cross-compiler to build u-boot and booting hfp uImage, and still can boot into linux system.
I downloaded the little-endian linaro toochain binaries v4.9 (gcc-linaro-arm-linux-gnueabihf-4.9-2014.09_linux.tar.xz) and installed it.  I was able to compile u-boot without errors.  When I try the output u-boot.bin, it does not boot on the target.

I'm starting to think something with my u-boot configuration is wrong.  Could the "make LDFLAGS="" CC="$CC" mx6dlsabresd_config" be the culprit ?
