Checking by it in Google lead me to
http://boundarydevices.com/i-mx-6dq-u-boot-updates/ so I think you can take
a look there and upgrade it.

It usually is done using the desired qemu machine for building (qemuarm,
for example). You can do other tricks like building kernel only for it and
use another rootfs but I don't know if it is worth the hassle.
