Ehh, pcm051lb or phytec_cosmit_am335x?

Typos/odd sentence. What about:

This may take a long time. During this process, additional source code is
downloaded from the Internet.

Hmm, can't we build MLO ourselves?

Hmm, it looks like there's a mount command, a 'cd' in front of
output/images and sudo before the tar missing.

Please don't hardcode JLEVEL in a defconfig.

Defconfigs should use the internal uClibc toolchain.

These packages are for a specific use case and shouldn't be in a minimal
defconfig.

  The patch that makes that possible in barebox was just rejected in 
patchwork...

Ahh, ok. I don't personally use barebox, but if people need this then
presumably the patch can be resurrected.

Yeah. I don't think there's much need to stay at 3.2 for am335x nowadays
though.

Thanks for your patch, but despite the feedback provided by Peter
Korsgaard and Arnout Vandecappelle just a few days after you posted
your patch, you never came back to us with an updated version of the
patch. Since it's been 6 months now, I'll mark your patch as "Changes
Requested" in our patch tracking system.

Since we are definitely interested in seeing some defconfigs added for
Phytec boards, do not hesitate to update your patch, take into account
the comments made by Peter and Arnout, and resubmit it.

Thanks a lot for your contribution!

Thomas
