I noticed that -rc4 has also been build, so I've given that a test-run
on sunxi instead:
It's not headed to F-22 just yet as there's an issues with distro boot
for a few devices (likely I've screwed up the patch rebase for
i.MX6/TI devices. Once that's confirmed as fixed I'll pull it back for
From a sunxi pov this build looks good.
Talking about enabling extra boards, from a sunxi pov I would like to
see the following enabled:
Most of those were on my todo list :)
Common / widely available dev-boards:
Common / widely used top set boxes:
Common / widely used "hdmi sticks":
This leaves some special dev boards (official allwinner devkits
mostly), some uncommon top set boxes / hdmi sticks, and a bunch
of tablets. I would like to eventually enable tablets, but atm
without otg support being upstream they are not really usable yet.
Once we have the tablets usable, we should probably just do
a grep in configs/_defconfig for SUNXI and just enable all of them
to avoid having to manually keep a list. I'm fine with switching
to such a grep right away.
Got a patch for me to look at?
*) The Orangepi's do not have a dts upstream yet, but we do need to
enable them eventually, might just as well do so now.
