From the looks of the blog post they did in Nov '17 on the state of Allwinner Soc support, it looks like quite a few things should be working... particularly the GbE ethernet.

However, since they don't have SDIO Wifi working, anyone who needs the custom 'integrated' wifi module will want to avoid this for now, as it won't work. That and the fact that 3 of the four processor cores are switched off! They have certainly put a lot of effort into this though, and from the sounds of it if a features is supported it works, and works well.

From their writeup about the pinebook image:

Quote:The A64 is a quad core design. NetBSD's aarch64 pmap does not yet support SMP, so three cores are disabled for now.

oh! thanks for pointing all this out, I only saw the announcement - didn't look in to the specifics.

the SMP problem has been solved for quite a while now (well over a year).
