So far the main issues in 5.9 that I have observed on the Pyra (possibly most of
these are actually 5.7+ issues).
- Sometimes the display driver doesn't start correctly, this seems to be
related to HDMI not initialising with EPROBE_DEFER forever.
- When the display goes to sleep via DPMS, it doesn't turn on again, getting
stuck forever in an atomic modeset operation.
- The PowerVR driver initialisation fails. I suspect that a clock for the GPU
isn't being enabled properly; or less likely some memory management change in
the kernel has broken the accesses that the driver does.
