So far, I have reviewed the CGU/clock, TCU and pinctrl functionality, made 
some fixes to the earlier work, and it compiles fine in a branch rooted on the 
v5.8-rc1 tag in the torvalds/linux repository.

I'm going to try and work through the other functionality. Some things are now 
obsolete: for example, the GPIO driver is now incorporated into pinctrl. There 
will also be a need to fix up the device tree files, with jz4730.dtsi probably 
being in fairly good shape, but with mipsbook_400.dts likely to need a bit 
more work.

I'm also aiming to try and incorporate my recently acquired knowledge about 
HDMI and the LCD controller to make a recent kernel work in these respects on 
the CI20. Hopefully, I will make some progress there as well.
