We need to adapt to use the official kernel for the board.

I think it did work for your board because Boundary's U-Boot already
handles it however we currently use U-Boot 2013.01 by default here and
this still doesn't cope with the other variants of i.MX6 SoC.

What is the Boundary's plans for the kernel? A single kernel tree or
two (as done by FSL)?
