In the "Goldelico Replicant", i.e. not the official Replicant branch,
but our GTA04 porting branch, lots of those features already work, i.e.:
Telephony, Mobile Data, WiFi (right now we include the firmware blob),
Sensors (some of them)
Please refer to the project page of this Replicant version:
And watch out for my talk at OHSW, where I will present exactly what I
