I'm not liking this much.  the $(uname -r) is coming from the host
maching where the docker image was created.  Admittedly it will
very likely be x86_64, but who knows what kernel version it will be.
It's in unlikely, IMO, that the kernel version of the host will match
the kernel version of the target board.

This won't matter for a test like 'backfire', but for something else,
this could be important.

In the long term, I'd like to separate out some of these packages
into a separate 'install x86_64 toolchain' step.  I believe the patches
from profusion are starting some changes to Dockerfile in this direction.

Sorry but NAK on this one.

Let's have a discussion to decide how to best re-do the toolchain/SDK setup
for x86_64, so it doesn't have the problems mentioned above.
