I took the what was linked at the SABRE Automotive Infotainment board
Freescale page in January and applied all provided patches. I also have
been trying to get some support from Freescale but not getting much
there.  Maybe I am not talking to the right people.

essence, what I want to do it to partition the NAND device on the
mx53_ard board.
