I have uploaded letux-4.20-rc6:


Major changes:
* rebased onto letux-base=v4.20-rc6
* added latest TILER fixes
* alternative driver for w2sg0004 added
* input: misc: as5013: fix and cleanup locking

The latest TILER patches now dynamically detect OMAP5 vs. other platforms
and does the right thing for OMAP5 and non-X11 case.

I have tested on Pyra with disabling X11 and I now can rotate the console
(/dev/tty1) as expected through /rool/tiler-ctl.

w2sg0004 is an alternate driver for GTA04 GPS developed by Andreas and is
in process of upstreaming.

Finally, there is a fix by Andreas for the as5013 driver where locking was
done in wrong sequence which may be a problem with a dual as5013 device
like the Pyra.

My (quick) tests show that this kernel works fine on OMAP3 (GTA04 and OpenPandora).

On one Pyra unit I have seen problems with finding the boot partition
(PARTUUID not found, although it is known to the kernel).

Generall the Pyra the panel driver is still broken. Sometimes it shows a single
pixel line with content that seems to depend on X11 activities.

For the Pyra panel driver this -rc6 kernel prints the following log:

This is a good indication where to look next for the panel driver bug:
