kernel comparison
I'm sure this has been asked before, but I can't seem to find it.  What are the differences between ayufan and mrfixit's kernels?
Nobody has written a comprehensive guide but you may be interested in looking at the git commit logs for the various projects
What are YOU looking for?
Me, an aarch64 development system on which I can test the NEON extended instructions.
So, I want to see "neon" in /proc/cpuinfo
Also since the RK3399 has six cores, 4x A53 and 2x A72, I want to see that in /proc/cpuinfo.
AND since mainline Linux is at kernel 5.2.x and GCC is at 8.3.x, them too.
Mrfixit and Ayufan are doing kernel 4.4.xx and GCC Ver 7.3.
Manjaro is so far the best with kernel 5.1.x and GCC 8.2.x (an Arch spin off)
DietPi on RockPro64 Kernel 4.4.178, no neon in /proc/cpuinfo all exe's are ELF 64-bit LSB shared object, ARM aarch64
Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS, kernel 4.4.167 No NEON in /proc/cpuinfo, gcc Ver 7.4.0 creates 64bit exe files
Debian, kernel from MrFixIt.
NetBSD, works but without GUI development libraries, way too hard to get my app going. NetBSD needs a repository for arm64, they are working on it.
