I'm with the Freescale guys here. I don't like compressed patches. This 
requires some extra steps to review (at least for me) and normally I am too 
lazy to do this right away when reading the mails. Even if these boards 
support patches are not that frequent, there should be no "obstacle" to send 
them inline.

Best regards,
