New branch 5.4-2.1.x-imx for linux-fslc
Toradex is currently working on integrating the new NXP release
'L5.4.24_2.1.0'. For this we created a new kernel branch '5.4-2.1.x-imx'
based on NXP's kernel 'imx_5.4.24_2.1.0'.
We already merged patches from stable linux 5.4.47 into '5.4-2.1.x-imx'.
@Otavio: I sincerely ask you if you could place the branch '5.4-2.1.x-
imx' that resides currently in my private github account:
into the repository
Thanks and best regards,

This is great news! I was half the way of working on the same update,
but now since you have the merge done - I can take your version
I'll grab this one to test on i.MX8M Mini EVK now and try it out.
Have you ported the patch  from upstream? Without it - the latest
master build would fail (it is needed for binutils-2.35).

Hello Philippe,Hi Andrey,
We were building binutils-2.34 so didn't notice this issue. I've cherry-
picked the patch you mentioned.

I've tried to build the branch from your repo with latest master of
meta-freescale, and saw couple of issue with imx8mmevk machine:
1. imx-gpu-sdk recipe fails to build, as it requires the header which
is most probably missing in the kernel:
| make: *** No rule to make target
needed by 'build/Yocto/obj/Release/source/FslBase/Bits/ByteArrayUtil.o'.
2. Kernel panics on the startup, there is something related to FEC driver:

That's great, I've synced up the tree to your latest commit and theHi Andrey,
perf build build went through.

Hey Philippe,I guess any user-space stuff need updating to versions that NXP provides
with BSP 'L5.4.24_2.1.0'.
OE-core updated glibc which is the provider of 'sys_errlist.h' so maybe
that is the reason for build failure?
Thanks for pointing this out, I could reproduce the issue and checked.
There were still two commits missing. One revert that we believe is not
applicable to downstream fec_main.c
This one also solved the issue. The other IPU commit was also missing.
Now it works on our side. Can you confirm?

Correct! My bad: I did a pull of OE-Core and then your Kernel branch,
which I should not have been doing in the first place. This issue is
not from Kernel, it is a pure glibc one. Thanks for pointing it out!
Yeap, Kernel build off commit 1e10771673463a332a7e477fcba0b9488ec5362bThanks for pointing this out, I could reproduce the issue and checked.

multimedia are OK, but in general at this state this merge is
I believe you can make a PR in https://github.com/Freescale/linux-fslc
for Otavio to have a look at it.

I guess Otavio needs to pull it from my branch, I'm not able to create a
new branch as PR.
