For any NVIDIA Tegra users out there, a ton of exciting support work is finally being mainlined with the Linux 4.5 kernel.

Following the big ARM updates for Linux 4.5, Olof Johansson sent in a pull request this Friday afternoon with a ton of Tegra-specific updates. Olof explained, "Here's a single-SoC topic branch that we've staged separately. Mainly because it was hard to sort the branch contents in a way that fit our existing branches due to some refactorings. The code has been in -next for quite a while, but we staged it in arm-soc a bit late, which is why we've kept it separate from the other updates and are sending it separately here."

Tegra X1 (Tegra 210) SoC support and Tegra Denver ARMv8 (Tegra 132) SoC support. Aside from the long-awaited SoC enablement is also the P2530 mainboard support, P2361 board support, Tegra132 Norrin support, Jetson TX1 support, P2597 I/O board support, and other related work to the modern Tegra development boards. Exciting me the most, of course, is the Tegra X1 / Jetson TX1 portion.
