Glad to hear you find this useful.  We won't ever import the meta-tree
at facebook/openbmc directly into openbmc/openbmc.  We've started a new
openbmc/meta-facebook for our machine specific support here.

If there are recipes under facebook/openbmc that you find useful and we
haven't already ported them to some openbmc/meta-* layer, feel free to
do so.  Off the top of my head I'm not sure the best place for this
particular recipe.
