I. Adding the meta-google layer to your build

In order to use this layer, you need to make the build system aware of

Assuming the meta-google layer exists at the top-level of your
yocto build tree, you can add it to the build system by adding the
location of the meta-google layer to bblayers.conf, along with any
other layers needed. e.g.:

  BBLAYERS ?= " \
    /path/to/yocto/meta-phosphor \
    /path/to/yocto/meta-google \

II.  Purpose

Including this layer adds the following packages to your obmc-phosphor-image:

* google-ipmi-sys: OEM IPMI Handler for providing specific information to the host.
* phosphor-ipmi-blobs: OEM IPMI Blobs Handler for providing the framework for specific blob handlers.
* phosphor-ipmi-ethstats: OEM IPMI Handler for reporting ethernet device statistics from the BMCs ethernet devices.
* phosphor-ipmi-flash: OEM IPMI Handler for controlling in-band firmware updates.

III. Customizations

Presently, this layer also enables the Google Iana for registering phosphor-ipmi-ethstats in addition to the OpenBMC one.
