But you are still doing patches for it? ;) Wouldn't it be easier
to just merge them again? Funny enough, I ported some changes from
the imx version to the non-imx version.

So yes I agree, this situation isn't optimal. And I don't think
it makes any sense to port patches between these two. IMHO nobody
will care for both at the same time, let alone being able to test
