yes, that is good to have and manage a specific Pyra defconfig.
The letux_defconfig builds a lot of modules which are not needed for the Pyra. And by configuring some stuff into the kernel instead of loading modules, boot time can drastically be reduced.

This is already part of letux-4.19.
So what is missing? Maybe it is not configured. Or have there been important AUFS upstream patches?

SGX is now working equally well on letux-4.19, letux-5.4 and letux-5.5 kernels. So why do you think it is a problem child?
Only the drm_fbdev_helper is broken on 5.4/5.5 and makes framebuffer rotation fail, but that is not an SGX problem.

I have recently integrated the "pyra_defconfig" (not letux_pyra_defconfig) provided by aTc into the 5.4 and 5.5 kernels:
There was a backport for letux-4.19 waiting in the queue, but it was not yet published.
I have triggered the kernel-upstream-update process and it has already been pushed:
So please can you check what diffs are needed against the latest letux-4.19 kernel (master or letux-4.19.101 branch) and rebase if necessary?
BR and thanks,
