Banana-pi R2 has quite a good upstream support in the kernel, but lacks a u-boot support.

The idea is to sit down at get working on that. This would be a good starting point to get u-boot support for other Mediatek SoCs as well.

      As I didn't know too much about u-boot internals, it took me 3 days and a half to get the first character on the screen. State of the work right now is, that I can boot u-boot but serial console is somehow not working. So a lot to do for next hackweek.

      Even so the outcome is rather thin, I learned a lot about u-boot and it's internals.
