MP3 decoder is not accelerated by hardware in any i.MX I can remember.
At least it is not in imx6 for sure.

Freescale does provide a "optimized" mx3 decoder, but I don't have
comparative numbers to know what is the optimization.

Would you be able to use the mainline mp3 decoder provided by
gstreamer community?

You can enable it by adding a link for this on your local.conf:

MACHINE_GSTREAMER_1_0_PLUGIN_mx6q ?= "gst1.0-fsl-plugin"
