Olof Johansson has submitted the pull requests of ARM/ARM64 board/SoC updates for the Linux 4.14 merge window.

Among the feature work in the ARM hardware space for the Linux 4.14 LTS kernel are:

- Platform support for the TI dra762 family.

- Debug support for the Renesas r8a7743 among other Renesas platform updates.

- New platform/SoC support for the Renesas R-Car D3, TI DT76x, MediaTek mt2712e, Qualcomm IPQ8074, Broadcom Stingray, Marvell Armada 8080, and Unipher PXs3.

- Platform SoC driver registration on NVIDIA Tegra.

- Renesas R-Car R3 support.

- Among the new ARM boards supported are for the Beaglebone X15 Rev C (TI AM57xx), Raspberry Pi Zero W, D-Link DIR-685 router (Gemini-based), Banana Pi R2 (MT7623), Cubietruck Plus, Banana Pi M3/M2M/M64, NanoPi A64, A64-OLinuXino, Pine64, Rockchip RK3328 Pine64/Rock64 support, ZTE ZX296718 PCBOX Board, and others.
