Currently, to use a newer kernel, you should focus on mainline. We
have 4.14 recipe ready for use.

The 4.9 GA BSP integration is in progress but not finished yet. Some
patches are in master-next for the test. Honestly, I'd focus on
meta-freescale as it is a leaner layer but it is hard to advise
without knowing all the requirements.
