As a arm sub SoC maintainer, the patches come to me mainly are related with
dts, defconfig, arch/arm/hisilicon and drivers/platform.
Generally you can based your patches on rc1 and there is very few case your
patches will be conflicted with others.

Yes, no much development on this tree.
But it is still benefit for hisilicon and the community.
And other silicon vendors also do like this.
