I’ve taken a quick look at the kernel at:
https://github.com/96boards/linux-hikey.git (master branch)
I count 976 patches on top of mainline. There’s lots of Linaro kernel stuff in there unrelated to the board and this can get in the way of kernel development.
Is there going to be a minimalist branch on top of mainline just for the board support?
Or is the board itself already supported by mainline?
