Not really, I just saw a few people on the list asking about booting
i.MX6 boards. So I was wondering whether you guys support those already.
The wandboard [1] or the CuBox [2] seem to be quite interesting, lots of
horse power and reasonably priced.

I thought about porting some wireless communication protocols to an L4
based platform. Both seem to be an interesting piece of hardware that
have enough power for SDRs.
