FSL ARM folks has u-boot-imx based in 2009 version of u-boot. This is
the official u-boot version supported by then in their BSP but in fact
all boards here default to u-boot-fslc in OE and we keep u-boot-imx
only as fallback if someone needs.

Yes, we had a heat discussion  about it last days. We tried to avoid
u-boot name so it is clear it is not DENX version and give a good
example on how to have a specific version of u-boot packaged or
developer will need to mangle with preferred versions and like.
There's no right or wrong here but preference ...
