what would be the point of using an extra pci* / usb sata bridge while
you can get one for "free" ? [ if they want dualcore, they could have used
the imx6 dual, which does have sata ].

I'm not sure that all armhf boards have been converted atm (at least on
imx side), so I guess we'll have to keep the actual flavours until
they've all been converted. Oh, and while we're at counting flavours, we may
even need at least one more for LPAE.
