Re: linux-imx-headers and ioctl mismatches
Hi Otavio,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I would be happy to help out some with moving linux-imx to the 5.4 kernel as we are very interested in using it. Is this planned to be in for the Dunfell branch when that is released?

Otavio, do you expect all the vendors to have their kernel matchingand it is vendors consideration for their users. If they don't care, who should care? We are starting removing broken boards and vendors should pay attention to users.
There are two routes here:
- use mainline BSP
- use NXP BSP
for NXP BSP it comes with the need to keep upgrading it.
I personnaly think that the headers should be installed from theThis does not help; those headers should not exists in first case but as we do, a common base need to be used for all distro. Their symbols goes to other libraries and apps so it cannot change between machines.
FYI, our next kernel release will be 5.4.3_1.0.0 as it is out sinceWill be going to 5.4 soon and people can help, patches welcome.
