Hi All,

Sending an RFC as I am not sure if this is the right place to add
this. I wanted to add the debian package depends in machine.conf
file but didnt find any variables.
IMAGE_INSTALL_append would work there, see eg.

Whether we want to "hard-code" the installation wireless firmware in the
machine conf here is a different question. Maybe customizations is not
that a bad place.

Is this the right place for adding this, if not could you please point
me to the right direction.

Let's already prepare for other targets requesting the generic wireless
tools as well: Put them into a reusable variable and then add that
variable here.
