Build U-Boot out of Yocto tree

This is a single U-Boot image that supports all VAR-SOM-MX6 SOMs.

Obtain sources:

$ git clone -b imx_v2015.04_4.1.15_1.1.0_ga_var03

Build U-Boot:

$ source /opt/fsl-imx-x11/4.1.15-2.0.1/environment-setup-cortexa9hf-neon-poky-linux-gnueabi
$ cd uboot-imx

clean tree:
$ make mrproper

Choose build for SD card or NAND flash:
$ make mx6var_som_sd_defconfig
$ make mx6var_som_nand_defconfig

Build U-Boot:
$ make -j4

Install the built U-Boot on an SD card

Flash U-Boot to the SD card (replace /dev/sdX with your correct device):

$ sudo dd if=SPL of=/dev/sdX bs=1K seek=1; sync
$ sudo dd if=u-boot.img of=/dev/sdX bs=1K seek=69; sync

If you want to use the SD card to flash the built U-Boot to NAND flash, then copy it to the appropriate location in the SD card:

$ sudo cp SPL /media/rootfs/opt/images/...
$ sudo cp u-boot.img /media/rootfs/opt/images/...

And eject the SD card gracefully from the host machine.
