Yocto recipe for u-boot logo

How can I create a Yocto recipe to set the logo for initial stages of booting for i.MX 8M Mini?

Not by manipulating with u-boot command line but by building the image by Yocto.

Not the best way, but it works

meta-my-layer/recipes-bsp/u-boot-imx$ tree
.
├── files
│   ├── freescale.bmp
│   └── imx8mm_evk.h
└── u-boot-imx_2020.04.bbappend

freescale.bmp must be 8-bit. Use this command to convert from png:

convert freescale.png -type Palette -colors 224 -depth 8 -compress none -verbose BMP3:freescale.bmp

imx8mm_evk.h can be found in 

.../imx-yocto-bsp/build-imx8mmevk/tmp/work/imx8mmevk-poky-linux/u-boot-imx/1_2020.04-r0/git/include/configs/imx8mm_evk.h

copy to the files folder of the recipe and edit lines of #define

#define CONFIG_EXTRA_ENV_SETTINGS \

 to place logo to the center add

	"splashpos=m,m\0" \

 save, build.

I already have a layer and replace a logo. But I need to set U-boot variable splashpos=m,m.

Files tree is

But I got

can't find file to patch at input line 3
Perhaps you used the wrong -p or --strip option?
The text leading up to this was:
--------------------------
|--- imx8mm_evk.h
|+++ imx8mm_evk.h
--------------------------

And there are no any files in the work/imx8mmevk-poky-linux/u-boot-imx/1_2020.04-r0/git/include/configs where imx8mm_evk.h .

Probably patch applies before files appear in the directory.

How to fix the recipe?
