A true mainline Linux Kernel for the Pinebook Pro

is there any news on this topic? Are there any plans for updating? 5.12 is out already. Could we just use vanilla kernel sources already? Are all patches upstreamed and if no - is there a list of relevant fixes that are not upstreamed?
I guess that 5.11 and 5.12 kernels may bring useful updates to pinefrost, hantro and rkvdec.

I found this repo which appears to be a PKGBUILD for mainline support on Arch Linux ARM with kernel 5.12.9

https://github.com/nadiaholmquist/pbp-packages

This is actually ahead of the ALARM linux-aarch64, which is currently at 5.11.4. But it appears she archived it just a week ago. I'm not sure if that means the work is being moved elsewhere or she lost interest. In any case, I plan to build it myself. Hopefully it can be merged into the official ALARM pkgbuild.
