This style looks like a maintenance problem: the code below is probably
IMX6-specific, and you should test for *that* instead of adding to this
list of things that are *not* IMX6, because that list is likely to
continue growing. There are more occurrences below.

I'm not an expert on fallthrough annotation (Gustavo, cc'd, is), but
this looks wrong. It's the IMX7D case that falls through, not the
IMX8MQ case.

The recent annotations added by Gustavo are at the point where the
"break" would normally be, e.g.,

case IMX7D:
/* fall through */ <--- annotation
case IMX8MQ:

But in this case there's actually no IMX7D-specific *code* there, so I
suspect the annotation is unnecessary. It's obvious that IMX7D and
IMX8MQ are handled the same, so there's really no opportunity for the
"forgotten break" mistake -Wimplicit-fallthrough is trying to find.

If we *do* want this annotation, we should spell it the same as
Gustavo has been, i.e., "fall through".

Again, more occurrences below.
