Looking at the DT it adds support for CPUs, some memory and serial
ports, it doesn't appear to inherit a .dtsi for other functionality. I
don't see whether it's dependent on other patch series and it looks
like there's some feedback.
In the short term I'm not sure in their current state they provide
much of use in a Fedora kernel without other patch series.
Yes, this just does Kconfig and dts enablement. There are separate
patch sets that we will publish soon for network, ahci,
gicv3/gicv3-its, pci, smmu, kvm. All of them base on this first
series. From the feedback it looks like we will resend an updated
For running the kernel with Fedora you need at least our msi based pci
host controller (requires gicv3-its) with ahci and network pci device
drivers on top. Thus, the dts file will not change too much for this.
So I am not sure how you want to integrate all this. Either early
patches as soon as they are available or waiting with an integratione
until a complete patch set for a bootable system is in place.

Excellent, I'll be there too so we should definitely meet up. In the
interim also feel free to send a general introduction of yourself to
the arm@ mailing list :-)
I was hoping this would have been the introduction mail. However, I am
at Cavium in the kernel team and will drive upstreaming patches and
support to integrate them into Fedora. So if there is anything I can
help with, let me know. It will be good to see you in Prague.
Thanks and looking forward seeing you,
