Request for new Open Source Driver - khaosgrille - 06-11-2019

Hi,

there is a new driver coming to the 5.2 linux kernel called Panfrost https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/panfrost. Afaik Rockpro6 has a Mali GPU and maybe it could use these drivers. Are there any plans to backport them to the current kernel or to jump to a newer kernel in the near future?
Kodi for example supports Panfrost and should be running much better with it.

Greetings,
Khaosgrille
