Yes; this is the way it can be done. When Boundary Devices send the
Nitrogen boards for meta-fsl-arm-extra, we may have an boudarydevices
override that share it among the boards however for now, this is the only
board from them supported.

Good; please pick Mario's patch in meta-oe mailing list and give it a try.
I think it will make calibration just work.

We can check it again but it is important to check about ABI of binaries so
we can have them really working fine (GPU, VPU and maybe others).
