Re: Safe to upgrade to a Community BSP?

Thanks for quick responses!!!
I noticed (as I am attempting to apply patches we use), that /arch/arm/mach-imx/cpuidle-imx7d.c exists in the 5.4.X.imx version we are currently using, but is not present in 5.12. But mach-imx7d.c is.
Will I have to add files (via patches) to fully support imx7d vs. what we had in the freescale 5.4.X.imx release?
Thanks a ton,

One important aspect to consider is what is the i.MX SoC that you are using.
imx28/imx5/imx6/imx7 have decent support in the upstream kernel.
imx8m/imx8mm are getting better.
imx8qxp has a minimum support upstream in 5.12.
