[meta-freescale] Status of i.MX8 support

What is the state of the meta-freescale i.MX8 support? I'm trying to
compile image for NXP i.MX8 development board (MCIMX8QXP - CPU).

I'm using thud - branch of everything, but while compiling and using
kernel linux-imx_4.9.123 (that's the only one with i.MX8 support as
far as I can tell based on recipes) the kernel fails to build
properly. I think it's more of the kernel modules that create some
bitbake related errors.

ERROR: linux-imx-4.9.123-r0 do_package_write_deb: Fatal errors
occurred in subprocesses:
 dpkg-deb -b /home/teemu/proj/imx8dev/src/platform/hv/build/tmp/work/imx8qxpmek-poky-linux/linux-imx/4.9.123-r0/packages-split/kernel-module-snd-usb-audio-4.9.123-imx_4.9.123_imx8mm_ga+g6a71cbc

    output=stdout, stderr=stderr)

I cut that some and there are more of similar errors coming. If I
remove those modules from kernel I'll get error on some other module.

Just wondering if that should work? I know it's quite new and may have
some problems so if it's known not to work then I guess I'll do
something else.
