+Subject: [PATCH] imx6: apalis: Make the boot process more generic
+MIME-Version: 1.0
+Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8
+Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit
+
+I'm preparing support for Apalis imx6 boards in OpenWrt and I've ended
+up with quite huge patchset against upstream U-Boot 2018.03, so I'm
+trying to propose more generic way of boot process handling.
+
+In OpenWrt we usually have kernel, dtbs and U-Boot boot script in boot
+partition with ext4fs, so for some use cases it would be handy to be
+able to replace some of the files in the boot partion, that's why I've
+added write support to the ext4.
+
+I've added `set_blkcnt` environment variable which is needed for every
+`mmc write` command as we need to always specify size in block count.
+This is copy&pasted from official Toradex's flashing scripts, so all the
+credits for this work belongs to them.
+
+Currently the rootfs location is passed via mmcblk number and the
+problem with this approach is that the mmcblk number for the boot device
+changes depending on the kernel version and imx6 SoC type.  In order to
+avoid such issues, use the UUID method to specify the rootfs location.
+
+I've added new boot sequence, where we first try to load and run boot
+script defined in the new `script` variable, so the boot process could
+be more generic and overridden by the distro. When the boot script isn't
+loaded, it will use the previous boot sequence so it should be backward
+compatible.
+
+For the recovery purposes and better end user experience I've added boot
+from SDP as the last boot command if every other boot option fails. I
+plan to use SDP as official flashing/recovery procedure in OpenWrt for
+Apalis imx6 boards.
+
+I've copy&pasted almost everything from the `f086812a mx6sxsabresd: Use
+PARTUUID to specify the rootfs location` commit, so credits for the rest
+of this patch belongs to Fabio.
