Hi Otavio,

While still puzzled about how the parts fit together here, I
can confirm that builds of core-image-minimal and fsl-image-test
both produce bootable and very functional SD cards for the Nitrogen6X.

The kernel image provided is detecting the board as a Nitrogen6X:

	root at nitrogen6x:/unit_tests# dmesg | grep Nitrogen
	------------ Board type Nitrogen6X/W

I've tested audio output through the SGTL5000:
	root at nitrogen6x:/unit_tests# gplay audio8k16S.wav
	playbin2 is employed!
	fsl_player_init(): Successfully initialize!

The Wi-Fi adapter is also properly loading firmware:
	root at nitrogen6x:/unit_tests# ifconfig wlan0
	wlan0     Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr DE:AD:BE:EF:00:00
	          UP BROADCAST MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
	          RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
	          TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
	          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
	          RX bytes:0 (0.0 B)  TX bytes:0 (0.0 B)

The bad mac address is expected because the firmware file hasn't
been programmed for this device.

The wlan0 device is operating properly as shown by iwlist:

	root at nitrogen6x:/unit_tests# iwlist wlan0 scan | grep SSID

I think that this proves out the basic functionality of your patch set.

Many thanks!
