I. Adding the filesystems layer to your build

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

Assuming the filesystems 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 filesystems layer to bblayers.conf, along with any other layers needed. e.g.:
