    PostmarketOS helps with that
    Somehow I had never heard of PostmarketOS before, but that's exactly what I was thinking.
    Looks like they are further ahead than I thought. I will have to keep an eye on it.

    Qualcomm would be smart to support this directly. The best BSP is the one you can pull straight out of mainline at least for your second or third major firmware revision.

    yup, a630 was the first a6xx device supported upstream.. jfwiw, if you want to see the supported devices:

    well, display support for those SoCs was posted shortly after I sent the msm-next pull req.. so those won't be landing until v5.9.. not sure what the situation is as far as rest of things that are needed to get far enough to care about display/gpu..

    A bit offtopic, but what's the current state of modem support of Qualcomm chips for the mainline kernel? Can it be already used at least for mobile data?

    Would this mean we are closer running 'proper" Linux on phone hardware without the current ROM hurdles or is it for something else?

    I'm not really up to date with the current Linux/android/Phone relationship but this seems interesting.

    Snapdragon 8cx uses the Adreno 680 so looks like Linux on an arm laptop with 16GB RAM is not yet an option.

    More likely support for the ARM laptops, that 24h battery laptops, they had a commercial name for that
