I wanted to do it this way as well.

> I'm also thinking about future as I will probably want to include another one device, this time with i.MX7 (Cortex-A7) so maybe it would make more sense to rename the 'imx6' target into something more generic, like 'imx' and introduce arch-related subtargets ('cortexa7', 'cortexa9' and later, if something comes up, cortexa.. for the i.MX8 family)?

Yes, imx makes sense (or imx678 :P)
