A true mainline Linux Kernel for the Pinebook Pro

Could I see your extlinux/extlinux.conf?

Here are the current cmdline parameters that Manjaro boots with:
# cat /proc/cmdline
console=ttyS2,1500000n8 root=PARTUUID=937d1032-01 rw rootwait bootsplash.bootfile=bootsplash-themes/manjaro/bootsplash append video=eDP-1:1920x1080@60 ramdisk_size=10M earlycon=uart8250,mmio32,0xff1a0000

there  are indeed parameters for video and for serial console/early console.

And attached is the dtb currently provided:

.gz   rk3399-pinebook-pro.dtb.gz (Size: 17.5 KB / Downloads: 465)

(In my limited experience, it's easier to decompiled dtb into dts using dtc and compare these outputs)
