I should have choosen a better name when adding u-boot recipe; the
u-boot name gives the wrong impression it takes the source from DENX
(mainline) but it is not the case.

I agree it can be reworded.

Yes; I agree BSP X is broken but I'd also like to be clear about the
u-boot and linux recipes not being pure mainline (yet).

So Andrei can reword the commit log (not suggesting BSP X or Y are
right or wrong) but renaming for clearness. Can we go this route?
