Raspberry Pi 2 Support Being Tried For Linux 4.5 Kernel
Eric sent in his BCM2835/BCM2836 changes for pulling into the ARM -Next code for Linux 4.5, but it's coming rather late in the cycle, so it's not immediately clear right now whether this code will be accepted. Eric Anholt has been working for Broadcom on the Raspberry Pi / VC4 driver while recently he took over role as the Raspberry Pi kernel maintainer too.
These changes would allow the Raspberry Pi 2 to boot with the upstream Linux kernel, similar to the original Raspberry Pi. His set of pull requests for allowing this were posted early this morning to the kernel mailing list.
Separately, via the DRM tree, he's been working on getting the RPi 3D bits into the VC4 DRM driver for Linux 4.5 as well.
