Due to the feedback from Fabio and Gary, I marked this patch and PATCH
2/3 as Changes Requested.

Overall, I think firmware-imx.mk is pretty messy in terms of how it
describes what needs to be installed for each platform. It probably
needs to be cleaned up to allow to more easily support more
capabilities on more platforms.
