Hi Martin,

At this point we've not added any specific Gizmo support to the meta-amd layer.  It should be feasible to get it to work but at present no one has played with it.  My understanding is that it is G-series but an older rev of the silicon so there may be some adjustments needed.

Another point, the master branch is a bit behind as we've been focused on the daisy release.  In the coming weeks we will be starting to get the master branch in shape and working with the master branch of poky.  Hopefully in future releases our timing will be a bit more in sync with the poky releases.

Please let us know if you make any progress with the Gizmo platforms.
