To Bring it up to latest 4.x kernel, probably not real easy.

The first one obviously adds security and potentially fixes some memory leaks but probably not much benefit outside of that.

The second one would bring it inline with CAF although I'm not sure if there'd be a lot of benefit to it outside of potential optimizations.

The biggest risk that I see is unless I'm mistaken, there is no recovery partition on these nor is there any fastboot/flash mode in the low level bootloader which means you make one minor mistake and you are looking at JTAG to get back to a working device.
That sounds quite positive

No recovery is bad, which i find to be weird to be honest, but i have not looked at the image yet. Ill ask davidfor he's the image wizard

The best thing imho is to hook into u-boot and enable pxe-boot.
