Hi Linus, Here are the pull requests for arm-soc for this merge window, broken up into 4 different pull requests. In addition to this, I will follow up with a small branch that normalizes some of the defconfigs at the end of the merge window, since they have become quite shuffled with time.
There are a handful of conflicts in the first two branches, described in the emails. Unfortunately this release some driver maintainers picked up the devicetree fragments when they were sent with the same patch series as the driver updates, we normally avoid that and merge DT only through arm-soc, but this time it slipped through. I'm considering adding monitoring scripts for it in linux-next to catch it early since it's often a source for conflicts on active platforms. About the contributions this release: 826 patches from 170 authors, 29778 lines added and 11701 deleted. Dirstat this release is similar to most other releases, with the vast majority of changes in the devicetree files. For non-DT contributions cleanups of OMAP platforms and new development on Qualcomm and Nvidia memory controllers cover most of it, but also some ARM SCMI, Allwinner, Hisilicon and misc other platform improvements are there. 51.1% arch/arm/boot/dts/ 3.8% arch/arm/mach-omap2/ 3.0% arch/arm/ 7.0% arch/arm64/boot/dts/mediatek/ 3.2% arch/arm64/boot/dts/qcom/ 8.5% arch/arm64/boot/dts/renesas/ 6.6% arch/arm64/boot/dts/ 3.2% drivers/memory/ 3.6% drivers/soc/qcom/ 5.2% drivers/ Excluding DT: 17.2% arch/arm/mach-omap2/ 13.9% arch/arm/ 7.0% drivers/bus/ 5.8% drivers/firmware/arm_scmi/ 10.3% drivers/memory/tegra/ 16.5% drivers/soc/qcom/ 9.0% drivers/soc/ 6.4% drivers/ 8.1% include/linux/ New SoCs introduced in this release: - Amlogic: + Meson 8M2 SoC, a.k.a. S812. A quad Cortex-A9 SoC used in some set top boxes and other products. - Mediatek: + MT7623A, which is a flavor of the MT7623 family with other on-chip ethernet options. - Qualcomm: + SDM845, a.k.a Snapdragon 845, an 4+4-core Kryo 385/845 (Cortex-A75/A55 derivative) SoC that's one of the current high-end mobile SoCs. It's great to see mainline support for it. So far, you can't do much with it, since a lot of peripherals are not yet in the DTs but driver support for USB, GPU and other pieces are starting to trickle in. This might end up being a well-supported SoC upstream if the momentum keeps up. - Renesas: + R8A77990, a.k.a R-Car E3, a new automotive entertainment-targeted SoC. Currently only one Cortex-A53 CPU is enabled, we are eagerly awaiting more. So far, basic drivers such as serial, gpios, PMU and ethernet are enabled. + R8A77470, a.k.a. RZ/G1C, a new dual Cortex-A7 SoC with PowerVR GPU. Same here, basic set of drivers such as serial, gpios and ethernet enabled, and SMP support is also forthcoming. - STMicroelectronics: + STM32F469, very similar tih STM32F429 but with display support Enhancements to SoCs/platforms (DTS contents, some driver portions might not be in yet): - Allwinner sun8i (h3/a33/a83t) SMP, DVFS tweaks, misc - Amlogic Meson: I2C, UFS, TDM, GPIO external interrupts, MMC resets - Hisilicon hi3660: Thermal cooling, CPU frequency scaling, mailbox interfaces - Marvell Berlin2CD: SMP support, thermal sensors - Mediatek MT7623: Highspeed DMA, audio support - Qualcomm IPQ8074 PCIe support, MSM8996 UFS support - Renesas: Watchdog and PMU support across many platforms - Rockchip RK3399: USB3 OTG support - Samsung Exynos: Audio-over-HDMI on Odroid X/X2/U3 - STMicro STM32: Lots of peripherals added to STM32MP175C - Uniphier: Ethernet support New boards: Allwinner A20: Olimex A20-SOM-EVB-eMMC variant Allwinner H2+: Libre Computer ALL-H3-CC (h2+ version) Allwinner A33: Nintendo NES/SuperNES Classic Edition Aspeed: S2600WF, Inventec Lanyang BMC, Portwell Neptune Berlin2CD: Valve Steam Link Broadcom BCM5301X: Luxul XAP-1610 and XWR-3150 V1 Broadcom: Raspberry Pi 3 B+ Mediatek MT7623N and MT7623A reference boards Meson 8M2: Tronsmart MXIII Plus NXP i.MX: Engicam i.CoreM6, DHCOM iMX6 SOM, BTicino i.MX6DL Mamoj Qualcomm MSM8974: Sony Xperia Z1 Compact support Qualcomm SDM845 MTP development board Renesas: Ebisu R8A77990 board Renesas RZ/G1C: iwg23s: iWave G235-SDB TI am335x: Pocketbeagle support
