Just a heads up, DRM requires an open-source user-space, so if your
plan is to move the open-source kernel driver while using the
closed-source library (as that page seem to suggest), that might
change a few things.

If it's not been tested on any Allwinner board yet, I'll leave it
aside until it's been properly shown to work.
