Upstreaming of mediatek helios board

an idea by mbrugger

The only Mediatek "hacker" board available is from 96 Boards [1]. Unfortunately up to now there is nearly no mainline support. Idea would be to improve this situation. The idea would be to get the pin-controller merged first and then hopefully most of the other stuff can be just added (fingers crossed...)

openSUSE/SLE/Mainline U-boot for some not-yet-supported ARM64 boards

an idea by ldevulder

The Khadas VIM ( is an arm64 DIY Set-Top-Box based on Amlogic P212 reference board that use S905X SoC. As Odroid-C2 (based on S905 SoC) is in the mainline U-boot, it should be possible to adapt it for the Khadas VIM (of course a lot of work are needed!).

Help with mainline support for the Mediatek chromebook (MT8173 based)

a project by mbrugger

Lately the necessary patches to get rudimentary support for the Mediatek chromebook with a mainline kernel got posted. There are some hacks and I'll work on some good solution to get graphics go, at least.

work on sunxi a64 cpufreq driver (for teres-1, pine64)

an idea by mbrugger

With the teres-1 [1] laptop we have a first arm64 device we could use as end-users. Much work to run mainline kernel + u-boot was done already. But power consumption of the laptop is not optimal (~2 hours of battery life time). The idea is to support cpufreq for the A64 SoC upstream, which would enable the teres-1, pine64 and pinebook to run more power efficient. up to now it seems nobody is working on the driver [2].
