AFAIK it is similar to other allwinner devices and it is reasonable hack-able,
(ie not locked down, most source code available in the form of android kernels)
but no one really is working on it. AFAIK there is some rudimentary support
in the upstream kernel. Assuming this soc uses the same ip-blocks for mmc and
network as the A10 / A20 it could be that support for it will get better as those
get better support upstream.
