BSP stands for board support package....so it'll contain stuff to make the
kernel run on that specific h/w (eg: header files detailing the memory map
of the attached devices etc.).
If you have a builtin driver for the attached h/w, then yes, that code will
be compiled into your vmlinux image. If its a module then it might be
outside, depending on whether you've put in some sort of rootfs or not.
