My PCIe disk controller works with Linux 5.3.6
#1
As said in the title, I have a disk controller LSI 9208 8i that needed some patch (pcie_rk_delay_bus_scan) to work with kernel Rockchip line 4.4 (the patch is in ayufan's kernel since april). I tried again the mainline and, finally, it works out of the box with the version 5.3.6. By the way, I have not tested Panfrost graphic driver, and I could not make framebuffer console to work.
#2
I had problems with TCP conections from the Rockpro64 box with TVheadend to other computers with Kodi. Sometimes, the connection just stalled with a dumb conversation between peers like this:

PC: I confirm byte 12000 received (send me more).
Rockpro64: Take bytes 12001-15000.
PC: ...
Rockpro64: Take bytes 15001-18000.
PC: I confirm byte 12000 received (send me more).
Rockpro64:  Dodgy 

Perhaps the ethernet driver in Linux 5.3 is buggy and miscrafts some frames. I fixed it by disabling TCP checksum offload:

# ethtool -K eth0 tx off
