This is a large image that contains many standard Linux commands and
features including native (target-resident) versions of the GNU tools
including gcc and gdb. It contains all of the special Freescale SDK
packages such as USDPAA, etc.

If this image is boot, the resulting Linux environment will be much
like a command-line on a full desktop-type Linux system rather than
an embedded system.

While this type of image may not be appropriate for a final embedded
product, it can be very helpful for many development and evaluation
tasks. The reason is the full set of standard Linux facilities that
are already present in the image. In fact, users may find that they
can use this image instead of installing the Yocto-based Freescale
SDK onto a development system, at least initially.

For this reason, fsl-image-full is preinstalled on the disk drives
of Freescale QorIQ development boards that have disks.

For example, the image is complete enough that the standard Linux
open source command sequence configure; make stands a decent chance
of working for arbitrary open source packages that do not happen to
be on the image already.
