[meta-freescale] Please explain the logic on the MACHINEOVERRIDES ordering for meta-fsl-ppc:qoriq

For the past few months, I have patched out the way meta-fsl-ppc qoriq
constructs MACHINEOVERRIDES because I don't see the logic in it. It's
my preference that the overrides I set for my specific machine (e.g.,
p1010rdb, t1040rdb, or custom-machine) are found over the default
overrides in meta-fsl-ppc (e.g., init-ifupdown/qoriq-ppc/interfaces).
By default, if I set "p1010rdb" as the MACHINE in local.conf I get:
As you know, FILESPATH is in part built by using MACHINEOVERRIDES and
the path is built working right to left, so a file in an e500v2 override
is found before one under p1010rdb.
Shouldn't the more specific override be to the right?
I would think we want to produce the following:
If I'm wrong, please help me to understand why.
If there is agreement, then I would like to submit patches to change the
meta-fsl-ppc conf files.
