I guess all the folks using common iMX8 hardware are using Debian
derivatives rather than Debian itself, so they didn't think about
including iMX8 support in Debian?

I can't see anything about it in the freeze policy, but I got the
impression from reading a few unblocks that adding hardware support is
acceptable during the freeze (and in Debian stable updates). Perhaps
talk to the Debian Linux kernel team about it.
