[16:46:41] <Tsvetan> Antitrack I will make simple blog post how to use DTS overlays to define UARTS, SPI, I2C
[16:47:11] <Tsvetan> the reason these do not come pre-defined is because many GPIOs has more than one functionality so we can't guess what different customers will need
[16:47:22] <Tsvetan> this is also the reason there is no exported GPIOs by default
[16:47:42] <Tsvetan> the process is very simple and less complicated than using FEX :)
[16:48:31] <Tsvetan> right now we move all our images A13, A20, A33, A64 to mainline 4.20 kernel
[16:49:11] <Tsvetan> kernel 3.4 is obsolete with lot of security issues already taken care of in the newer kernels, also eMMC works much faster on 4.X kernels
[16:49:57] <Tsvetan> there is no any reason people to stay with 3.4 when there is 4.20 (or soon 5.0)
