What is the difference between the “Vivante GCCore” driver 
(CONFIG_DRM_VIVANTE) available in the 4.14.x kernel and the galcore.ko 
file that is being built and to the kernel modules directory on the 
target?  Do they do the same job?  Is it one or the other - in which 
case which is best?

Secondly, in the tmp/work/…/imx-gpu-viv directory there is a file called 
imx-gpu-viv-6.2.4.p4.0-aarch32.bin and likewise in 
tmp/work/…/imx-gpu-g2d there is a imx-gpu-g2d-6.2.4.p4.0-arm.bin.  I 
presume that these are some kind of firmware file but as far as I can 
see they aren’t making it into the file system on the target.  Do I need 
to do something with them?
