Just wondering - how close is the VisionFive to being able to run on a purely upstream Linux kernel? Are there efforts to upstream any of the remaining bits?

Thank you for your work!

There is no more plan on the JH7100, we will upstream in JH7110.

hi all! :slight_smile:

does this mean, that its upon the community, to upstream any remaining patches (didn’t check) or that it will be covered by the work on jh7110?

thx! :slight_smile:
