      The linked earlier blog post on Buffer modifier support has this:
      With modifier support added to Mesa and gbm_gralloc, it is now possible to boot Android on iMX6 platforms using no proprietary blobs at all. This makes iMX6 one of the very few embedded SOCs that needs no blobs at all to run.

      Not only is that a great win for Open Source in general, but it also makes the iMX6 more attractive as a platform.
