Initially, I sent this patch to answer to Marco's question (I should add in a 
comment that it was not destined to upstream).

I know it would be a nice addition (I have also imx5 support in stock). 
However, this package rely on specific versions of xorg, libdrm, kernel, 
etc... So, it was always broken. 

Freescale developments seems to be stabilized now. I may try to respin this 
patch. In any case, new version will be completely different than this one.
