[meta-freescale] [meta-fsl-arm][PATCH] add custom-licenses dir for freescale EULA

We are discussing this offline.

Freescale is moving to a new license with same rights are current EULA but covers more Freescale product lines including i.MX and Layerscape.   This transition will happen before Yocto Project 1.8 is released.

I'll upstream the new EULA once it is ready and this removes the requirement for multiple EULAs.

Maybe it'd be better to split it out?

No; but I can support any improvement we may need on the technical side. I think the first thing we ought to do is to identify how to deal with the license and later adapt the code for it.
