I don't agree u-boot-fsl is a good/clear name. But it's only a matter of 
naming. Anything else would be good. Let me explain:

currently we have:

1) u-boot from mainline plus some imx patches
2) u-boot from freescale (2009.08 - it's called u-boot-imx)

If there is any u-boot to be called FSL it would be the one provided by FSL.

So, I would propose

1) u-boot from mainline plus some imx patches = u-boot-imx
2) u-boot from freescale (2009.08) = u-boot-fsl

Or, in case you want to keep u-boot-imx as is, you can choose any other 
word to determinate 1), somethink like:

1) u-boot from mainline plus some imx patches = u-boot-github
2) u-boot from freescale (2009.08) = u-boot-imx
