Are you kidding?! There's nothing that could 'come' since it's there from the beginning. It's just defining that you want to use an LCD instead of HDMI (or configuring how you want to combine two displays to be used at the same time) and it's done the usual way we're doing this on every other Allwinner SoC with BSP kernel since years: http://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?t...9#pid20149

There's nothing 'experimental', the BSP kernel was able to use the LCD from the beginning, it's just different settings. And it's still done the same way as we know it from older Allwinner SoCs and BSP.

The only problem this community here had or still has is it that some people were so blinded by 'the Mali' hype that they didn't realize that if you want to use an LCD you have to switch settings to use the LCD. No 3D acceleration needed for using a display! Read through the above thread to get the sad details.

Yes, I am aware that support is already included since the beginning, it is just a matter of getting it to work correctly with the correct settings in the dts.

So far, it does not work properly yet as it blank screens after a few seconds (that's why i put "EXPERIMENTAL" to say that it's not ready for normal users because we either haven't discovered the correct settings for it or it's due to other factors, not because I am experimenting with support for the LCD screen).
