Oh I see! I think Android has made some significant progress is its ability
to use mainline (4.2 was an early stage and I remember having to backport
patches to use some mainline features back then).

Maybe it would be easier with Replicant 6, but you'd have to go through the
device bringup phase again, which is never nice.
