Here are commits for getting feedback from the community on the work
happening in the oecore for supporting hwcodecs for H/W BSPs properly.
  The current requirements: we need a mechanism to 
1. Add accelerated codecs to the images
2. Exclude the X based codecs automatically for images not including
   the Xserver
3. Need a simple config mechanism to exclude all the accelerated
   codecs for any image of a BSP

The current mechanism available in the meta-intel BSP configs is failing
to fulfill the 2nd requirement above. And I could not find any
meta-intel specific solution to achieve it.

Richard and I discussed this matter and came up with the solution
included in these commits. These commits will lead to BSP config
changes similar to this commit:

This work is not final, and also not properly tested yet, but this
email is written with the intention of sharing the proposed
infrastructure changes in oecore layer to the community before
they solidify.
