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?
It all depends how long it takes. Dunfell is an important release and as such we ought to try to have it using new components.
We need someone to help updating NXP components; I am focusing more on mainline BSP support since I've been doing this on our free time.
Is there a github issue or a list somewhere tracking what needs to be done for this?
No, even though we can open. Generally we need to update:

- linux-imx
- u-boot-imx
- headers
- gpu drivers
- media codecs
- gst
I'm currently working on this one, primarily for imx8mm and imx8mn
machines. So far, I have the following list I've noted for myself:
- linux-imx (with mfgtool)
- u-boot-imx
- linux-imx-headers
- kernel-module-imx-gpu-viv (gpu drivers)
- kernel-module-qca9377 (wlan drivers)
- imx-atf
- imx-mkimage
- imx-test
- optee-imx (client, os, test)
- media codecs
- gst (base, good, bad, gstreamer and imx-gst)

I'm almost through with it for the Mini, then would cross-check if
everything compiles for Nano. I would send a PR once both validations
are done.

One general question: Do we keep the 4.19.35 in the layer, or I can
simply drop it and introduce the 5.4.3? So far, I did just that and it
seems to be going OK.
