How to compile an image for LS1043A

The reference material for the LS1043A RBD (first link below) refers to the use of a Linux Kernel version of 3.19, but the only repo I can find uses 2.6 (second link below). I cloned the repo given in the second link and found a series of branches, but none are 3.19 as documented. Further, the documentation for building a Yocto image assumes you already have what you need.

 

I can pull the Yocto "Daisy" 1.6.1 from their website, but what about the NXP BSP files?

 

Also, the documentation talks about a series of scripts, like fsl-setup-poky and host-prepare.sh that should also be available. Is there a central location that you first pull from before building?

 

EDIT: I eventually found the community BSP repo (third link), but the supported processor list does not include the LS1043A. The supported list is provided as an attachment to this thread.

 

There are some BSP packages available for Freescale on the Yocto website (fourth link), but the LS1043A is not one of the supported packages.

 

Also, the reference material references an ISO that I should have access to. Any idea where to find this?

"Linux-LS1043A-SDK-<version>-<target>-<yyyymmdd>-yocto.iso"
