as I said to Andrei off list : if the comment was "rename u-boot to
u-boot-fslc as we find it better to show that this recipe builds
u-boot + freescale's patches", then that's a cosmetic choice and not a
technical issue.

But the commit log is "It's not right to have a recipe named as uboot
even if it uses a repo specific to freescale boards. This would lead to
issues while using other bsp layers in conjunction to meta-fsl-arm
where different u-boot versions but same uboot name are used." : it is a
false isssue and can be solved with an other way (more nice and clean
IMHO) than renaming the recipe, especially with the example provided in
the comment which clearly shows a problem in bsp X.
Getting this issue means bsp X's u-boot_git recipe which is not
designed to properly work with other BSP (and so you can expect other
issues with other recipes this BSP may include so in my daily usage,
unless I have time to analyze all the files in this BSP X, I would
certainly exclude it from my common builds and keep it in its own build
area to not take the risk to get unwanted changes from the faulty BSP).

I hope this is more clear now.
