Fabio said "mainline". I'm not sure whether meant linux-fslc (as Otavio
used it) or kernel.org.
So I wanted to check that.
imx6 has decent graphics support in the mainline kernel via the
Etnaviv driver. Userspace is standard Mesa, with no binary blobs
involved.
VPU is supported by the coda driver and the standard Gstreamer packages.
By mainline, I do mean a "kernel.org" based kernel.
linux-fslc uses the stable tree from "kernel.org" as the base and add
additional patch on top.
Ah yes, I see. Linux-fslc is now really up to date with kernel.org. I recall (from 2017 era) that that was different. Maybe I'm wrong about that.

Hope that clarifies things.
Yes, thanks for the explanation.

Bas.
