I did run some quick boot tests with letux-5.12-rc2. Here are the results and observations:

* Letux400: boots - no new issues observed
* CI20: fails to boot - tries to use jz4730 ingenic-timer which seems to run in jz4730 mode (fix is ready for 5.12-rc3)
* Pyra: boots - no new issues observed
* GTA04A4: boots - problems with pvrsgx (GetHandleStructure: Handle index out of range (4294967295 >= 256)) and hso driver
* GTA04A5: boots unreliable - kernel panics, stack protector, page faults etc. - maybe the 1GHz OPP and bias regulator makes problems again?
* OpenPandora: boots - problems with pvrsgx (GetHandleStructure: Handle index out of range (4294967295 >= 256)); [  103.191253] omap_i2c 48060000.i2c: timeout waiting on XUDF bit
* BeagleBoard XM + Display: boots - often hangs after: [    2.555053] Registering SWP/SWPB emulation handler (1GHz OPP?); display not working (infamous spi-cs not fixed)
* BeagleBone Black + Display: boots - /dev/fb0 exists but display/lcdc has problems: [CRTC:32:tilcdc crtc] flip_done timed out
* Letux 3704: boots - problems with pvrsgx - no battery status indication (GAB driver not enabled)
* Pandaboard ES: boots (unreliable as before) - if booted, it works well; HDMI works but startx fails (likely a config issue)
* PinePhone 1.0: boots almost - X11 seems to hang after initial operations; no login:; display backlight has severe flicker
* Kobolino: not tested
* RasPi 3B+: not tested

The pvrsgx issues are induced by my user-space (old X11 tries to access pvr by wrong ioctl).

This does not mean that there are no other regressions. Please help testing and debugging.

BR and thanks,
