there is an intermediate release fixing some significant issues.

Intermediate, because there is neither a v4.19.1 nor v4.20-rc1
where we simply could simply include our fixes.

Note that there is only source code, no binaries so you have to
compile yourself.

a) Fixes in http://git.goldelico.com/?p=letux-kernel.git;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/letux-

GTA04 & Pyra:
* convert DT for Pyra, GTA04A5, Pandaboard and Udoo Neo to use ti-st (serdev) HCI driver - we now have a hci0 right after boot
* rootfs: improve reliability of wwan-on and gps-on and hw-test gps for PLS8
* rootfs: add more hardware tests
* rootfs: add findinput tool
* rootfs: add findsoundcard tool
* rootfs: twl, tam, dial, ... use findsoundcard for amixer and play command
* hwtest: add -q mode, test for external GTA04 antenna, fix MAC address report for bluetooth

* bq24297: print a little more debug info for status registers
* bmg160: add missing of device table
* fix LID sensor of Pyra
* rename gpio buttons on Pyra

GTA04 and others:
* add back lost DT nodes for bluetooth on GTA04A5

b) There is also a branch http://git.goldelico.com/?p=letux-kernel.git;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/work-fixes-for-ed

This is for Pyra only.

It removes the AESS code which is broken and reestablishes the simple ABE audio driver.
To make it really work on the Pyra we have to disable CONFIG_CPU_IDLE.

This has the drawback that it makes the GTA04 power consumption to increase by 10mA in idle.
And perhaps the idle power consumption (i.e. temperature) of the OMAP5.

Therefore, this patch is not and will not be included in the next LetuxOS kernel releases.
Rather we have to fix the real issue.

The purpose of this branch is for testing the latest Pyra hardware.
Especially bluetooth and gps work now and audio (using aplay or sox/play).

NOTE: what seems to still be broken is TILER based console rotation (X11 appears to work).
