...or maybe I'll do the other way around: use the kernel headers from
Freescale's custom git repo, since the defconfig we currently use
(imx_v7_defconfig) is not available in mainline, and the closest one
in mainline (imx_v6_v7_defconfig) has several differences, and I'd like
to keep things simple and working.

I wonder if there's a good reason to use a mainline kernel instead.
