When doing development for a new SoC or BSP, a series of patches are created to get the hardware functional on Linux, u-boot, and other software. Yocto can be used as an easy way to get a functional distro with these changes. However, it is often overlooked as a way to upstream those patches. This talk will cover using Yocto for this.
