Although the boards are similar, there are a lot of differences:

Marsboard -> imx6dual, no sound, sst25vf016b spi flash, 1 external 
sd/mmc interface (sdhc2) and one eMMC (sdhc3), different PMUX config for 
no sdhc3, no pmic, i2c1, i2c2 and i2c3 externally available, no ssi 

Riotboard -> imx6solo, sound (sgtl5000), no spi flash, 2 external sd/mmc 
interface (sdhc2 and sdhc3) and one eMMC (sdhc4), pmic (pfuze100), i2c1, 
i2c2 and i2c4 externally available, ssi interface.

We could certainly create a dtsi file to be shared between them, but I 
do not know if it is worth the effort.

What do you think?

Best regards,
