    Linux kernel v6.6 is the latest upstream long-term support release, With StarFive’s continuous efforts in the past period, most of the JH-7110 drivers have been merged into the Linux kernel v6.6.Therefore, in newer upstream kernels, there is more support for JH-7110 which reduces the number of downstream-relevant driver patches and maintenance workload.
