Hi Peter,

First, sorry for the delay, it's been a crazy week.

Yes actually there's been a lot of discussion about that one already:
- First I did a patch similar as yours that was rejected not to remove
  the legacy mfgtools package [1]. The naming suggested was "imx-uuu"
- Then Jorg did offer some patches to add "imx-uuu" [2]
  -> not sure why this one is marked as superseded?
  -> all I remember is that the second patch of that series wasn't
  accepted as we agreed in [1] that mfgtools should stay as legacy as
  long as it builds basically.

So adding Jorg to this thread to figure out which is the best imx-uuu
package. My only remark on Jorg package is that the Kconfig comment
talks about UTP whereas UTP was for mfgtools (first of its name) whereas
UUU only uses SDP to load binaries into RAM and then fastboot to flash.
