imx28evk is a beautiful board. I´ve been testing it here and there and
I cannot remember serious problems. Of course, there are some:

* touch screen (with x11 at least) is not completely calibrated
* you can choose between linux-fslc or linux-imx
* you can choose between gstreamer mainline or the one provided by
freescale (see RN [1] in order to understand the HW/SW correlation)
* there is a pin conflict in imx28evk board, that I don´t remember
from top of my mind (I think it´s NAND + Ethernet cannot be used
* NAND is already supported in meta-fsl-arm
* mfgtools is not already supported in meta-fsl-arm, but it´s easy to
be included and your patch is appreciated.
* pendrive is not automatically mounted, but once you mount it
everything works fine (I have never stopped to fix that)

that´s all I could remember


Otavio, could some of this items be considered "known issue" to be
included in release notes? What do you think?
