Please check your e-mail client; it is not properly set to inline

The smaller images issue is something we can discuss and makes better
to have images which are targeting use-cases. I see following

 - machine test
 - multimedia
 - networking
 - virtualization

Those are more use-case targeted and validation images can be specific like:

 - fsl-image-validation-imx
 - fsl-image-validation-qoriq

and stop concerning about size initially.
