There currently is a very basic and somewhat broken VOP2 driver posted to the mailing list as of only a few days ago, so the good news is that people are confirmed to be working on it. It works enough to get to a wayland compositor though.

In its current state, it has several issues. For starters, it only works on 1920x1080p60 HDMI monitors, and only on boards with 4 GB of RAM or less, due to what may be a bug in the IOMMU driver (IOMMU bug has been found and a fix has been submitted as of a few minutes ago). Internally, it's quite messy, with broken state tracking leading to various bugs (one I've observed is a kernel Oops during reboots.)

It's hard to really come up with a time frame because I have no clue how many people are working on it (I counted at least two people who are involved with it at the moment) and what other things they're working on. Your best bet is to watch the Quartz64 Development page on the wiki over the coming weeks; I'll try to keep it updated with links to the new versions of all patch sets that are not yet mainline as they are posted. As newer versions of the patch set are posted, we can get a sense for the progress it's making.

In conclusion, I can't give you a time frame but I can tell you that there's people who are working on it.
