Hi John,

As a user of an ar71xx (WNDR3800) on OpenWrt, I'd like to ask if your desire is that ar71xx never gets bumped up to anything higher than 4.9 or it's just not 4.14 because of some specific reasons related to 4.14?

IOW, shall I be looking for a replacement because I'll stay on 4.9 forever?

Best regards,
Maciej

        I did some overview of the kernel version some months ago here:

        <http://lists.infradead.org/pipermail/lede-dev/2017-October/009446.html>

        Here is the current situation as of today:

        The following targets are on kernel 4.14 and are fine:
        * apm821xx
        * archs38
        * armvirt
        * cns3xxx
        * malta
        * mediatek
        * octeon
        * octeontx
        * sunxi
        * x86

        The following targets are on kernel 4.9 and are fine:
        * ar71xx
        * ar7
        * arc770
        * at91
                There are some patches for kernel 4.14 on the mailing list
                waiting for response from author
        * ath25
        * bcm53xx
                patches for 4.14 are available in master
        * brcm2708
        * brcm47xx
        * brcm63xx
                patches for 4.14 are available in master
        * imx6
                There are some patches for kernel 4.14 on the mailing list
                which is being worked on
        * ipq806x
        * ixp4xx
        * kirkwood
        * lantiq
                patches for 4.14 are in Mathias Kresin's staging tree.
        * layerscape
        * mpc85xx
        * mvebu
                patches for 4.14 are available in master
                I would like to get this to kernel 4.14 by default soon.
        * mxs
        * omap
        * orion
        * pistachio
        * ramips
                patches for 4.14 are available in master
        * rb532
        * uml

        The following targets are on kernel 4.4 and will probably not be
        included in the next release:
        * gemini
        * oxnas
        * zynq

        The following targets are on kernel 3.18 and will probably not be
        included in the next release:
        * adm5120
        * adm8668
        * au1000
        * mcs814x
                I have patches which port this target to 4.4 in my
        tree, but
                nobody tested them.
        
https://git.lede-project.org/?p=lede/hauke/staging.git;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/kernel-4.4
        
<https://git.lede-project.org/?p=lede/hauke/staging.git;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/kernel-4.4>
        * ppc40x
        * ppc44x
        * xburst
                I have patches which port this target to 4.4 in my

<https://git.lede-project.org/?p=lede/hauke/staging.git;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/kernel-4.4>

        This target is on kernel 4.1 (WTF):
        * omap24xx

        All the targets which are not on kernel 4.9 or 4.14 will
        probably not be
        included in the next release, I also haven't seen any activity
        for any
        of them to get support for more recent kernel versions, if you
        need them
        please take care now.

    Hi Hauke,

    I planned to make that list today, thanks for taking care of it !.
    I would like to see ar71xx and ramips stay on v4.9, regardless of
    there being patches for v4.14. I would also like to see ar71xx
    never being bumped to v4.14, I spent a few days last week
    revamping my old ath79 port and would like to see a hard cut,
    moving QCA mips target to OF only post release.

        John

Hi Maciej

please dont top post.

ath79 is the same as ar71xx but uses dts files instead of mach files
