Bitbake not installing files from recipe to rootfs

I'm currently using yocto to build the system imx6sxsabresd (IMX6 Solo X). I have successfully built the image however I want to add some a script to init.d to turn on a led. I'm appending to the linux-imx recipes.


This is my linux-imx.bbappend file:


FILESEXTRAPATHS_prepend := "${THISDIR}/linux-imx:"


SRC_URI += "file://0001-added-pad-for-heartbeat-led.patch \
        file:// \
        file://heartbeat "


PACKAGECONFIG_append = " heartbeat"


inherit update-rc.d


do_install_append() {
  install -d ${D}${sysconfdir}/init.d
  install -m 0755 ${WORKDIR}/ ${D}${sysconfdir}/init.d/


  install -d ${D}/home/root
  install -m 0755 ${WORKDIR}/heartbeat ${D}/home/root/heartbeat


FILES_${PN} += "${sysconfdir}/init.d/ /home/root/heartbeat"



I'm able to create the sdcard image succesfully with the patch I've included in this bbappend file, however, the files and heartbeat are not copying to the final rootfs added to the output sdcard file. This is very odd because I'm able to see these files in their paths copied to ../tmp/work/imx6sxsabresd-poky-linux-gnueabi/linux-imx/4.14.98-r0/image/
