Our goal should be to replace both meta-fsl-arm and meta-fsl-ppc with
meta-freescale, sure. However there are some subtle but important
differences between both. Patches from meta-fsl-ppc does not apply
directly into meta-freescale due the reorganization and deduplication
of QorIQ ARM and QorIQ recipes and, for me, the most important aspect
is that QorIQ is using meta-freescale for the release.

My goal is to try to get meta-freescale used for i.MX and QorIQ for
April release; I intend to start more actively test this as soon as we
merge current GA patches from i.MX.
