Anyone tried the new mainline images (Panfrost)?

Has Panfrost compiled!! HDMI audio & PCIe!! Ayufan at his industrious usual.

Seems to sit well with 

As a test I install the tasksel version of kde-plasma and its rather great with the above 2.
You need to set the network renderer to NatworkManager in the netplan yaml

Also just a slight one but the symlink in /etc/alternatives sets the sddm greeter to moai whilst all the rest is breeze so you might want to change that.
sudo apt-get install sddm-theme-breeze

I have tried gnome and its ok vanila but soon as you theme it, then it starts to get a bit clunky.
Its all opinion though, but think I waiver to criticism than optimism so suggest giving kde-plasma a go.

Burn the image, boot and sudo tasksel and select kde-plasma.
Presuming LXQT will be even more snappy.

I used dd to copy to my integral 120gb £20 nvme and apart from a slow boot in operation its extremely good.

The dts is 
&pcie0 {
ep-gpios = <&gpio2 RK_PD4 GPIO_ACTIVE_HIGH>;
num-lanes = <4>;
pinctrl-names = "default";
pinctrl-0 = <&pcie_perst>;
vpcie12v-supply = <&vcc12v_dcin>;
vpcie3v3-supply = <&vcc3v3_pcie>;
status = "okay";
   So I did a quick bodge and cross compiled on my pc and inserted after num-lanes = <4>;

max-link-speed = <2>;

So it acts a pcie gen 2.0 otherwise you get 1.0
