LIN1018-6303 : "wrl-small" rootfs has 435MB directory with firmware

Severity: Critical
Applicable for: Wind River Linux LTS 18
Component/s: Build & Config


Needs a smaller image and in the process of investigating the big size of the firmware folder in the lib directory in the roof, we discovered a couple of drivers that we consider not to be necessary for this specific BSP.

The directory included drivers for NVidia GPUs, Intel, Radeon.

Steps to Reproduce

Create a LTS 18 project with *--machines nxp-ls1028* and build a *small* image.

Uncompress the rootfs in a directory and go to: *rootfs/lib/firmware*

You can use the *du -h .* command to see the size of files.
