I am working on a custom BSP for a board based on i.MX6 quad and I need a mfgtool image. I have a custum kernel and bootloader for my machine, correctly proposed as PREFERRED_PROVIDERS of virtual/kernel and virtual/bootloader respectively. However when I try to bitbake the mfgtool image with "bitbake fsl-image-mfgtool-initramfs" it seems to be dependent on "u-boot-fsl-mfgtool" instead of my custum bootloader.


Investigating further I found that in the image recipe


the dependency is adjusted only for the kernel and not for the bootloader


# Replace linux-mfgtool with virtual/kernel

DEPENDS_remove = "linux-mfgtool"
DEPENDS_append = " virtual/kernel"


Should it be as follow ?


# Replace linux-mfgtool with virtual/kernel

DEPENDS_remove = "linux-mfgtool u-boot-mfgtool"
DEPENDS_append = " virtual/kernel virtual/bootloader"
