Yeah, I'd start with i.MX51 and add i.MX5[03] only when this is
supported in the same image. And I'm already working on that.
So using "mx5" seems ok, only concern is that is might suggest too much
at the beginning.
Currently there is only one i.MX50 machine in mainline (which depends on
BROKEN so hardly counts) and the three i.MX53 platforms by Freescale. I
think it's OK to skip these for now.
