With the next kernel -- regardless of whether it be known as Linux 3.20 or Linux 4.0 -- it will contain support for new ARM platforms.

This morning Olof Johansson sent in his various ARM Linux pull requests for the 3.20 merge window. From the series, the new 64-bit ARM Linux platform support includes the Samsung Exynos 7, Freescale LS2085a, and Mediatek MT8173.

The DeviceTree changes for the Linux 3.20 merge window includes new platforms of Alphascale ASM9260, Marvell Armada 388, CSR Atlas7, TI Davinci DM816x, Hisilicon HiP01, and ST STiH418. The ARM SoC driver work for this next Linux kernel version represents a variety of changes across the table. Coming in via the ARM SoC platform changes is new platform support for the Conexant Digicolor (CX92755 SoC), Hisilicon HiP01 SoC, and CSR/sirf Atlas7 SoC.
