I think the machine overrides could be used as we do in i.MX. We
merged i.MX and MXS in a single imx-base.inc file and control
everything using the SoC family.

In my point of view we ought to have a single .inc (qoriq-base.inc) to
handle ARM and PPC SoCs so people have the SoC family information in
the board files.
