I´m happy you decided what was the main problem of this situation.

Now I need to know how to name "linux-mainline". I´ve been cooking 3.7
recipe and I will send a patch in a while. I want to know how to name

I still think it´s weird not having a "u-boot" and a "linux" recipe. I
was looking around other meta layers and everyone have it.

In the other hand, meta-fsl-arm does support 2 u-boots and 2 kernels
(mainline and FSL), so, maybe having a description name for both would
be better.
