The above two changes look good.

As mentioned in my series, forcing everything over to 2017.1 breaks at
least QEMU due to pmu firmware requirements. And regardless of that
the old version needs to still be available for users that have not

This change is unnecessary. If you want to override the source

* EXTERNALSRC -> point at a completely custom source (doesn't even
need to be git)
* Use devtool (does equivalent to EXTERNALSRC) to modify the source
* bbappend and change SRC_URI/SRCREV
* Override {SRC_URI/SRCREV}_pn-arm-trusted-firmware from any conf
* Locally modify the layer/recipe for temporary changes
