Enable Graphics Acceleration on iMX6 running ICS

Registered by Zach Pfeffer on 2011-12-28

The iMX6 ICS build is not accelerated. Libraries are available via a click-through at : http://www.freescale.com/webapp/sps/site/prod_summary.jsp?code=i.MX535&fpsp=1&tab=Design_Tools_Tab. The goal is to mine this site and any other resource we can find to ensure that iMX6 is accelerated before any new platform comes online. This will ensure that users of Linaro's iMX6 builds have a great ICS platform to work from.
