Hi and thanks for the reply. 

This kernel available from Freescale/BoundaryDevices is quite old, version 3.0. Is there any plan on staying more up-to-date ?
I read somewhere on imxcommunity (https://community.freescale.com/thread/301032), which is from last year, that you (Otavio) where trying to follow the mainline kernel. Is that correct ?

Can I perhaps merge the vivante sources provided in this version into a newer kernel version ?? or is it to much of incompatibility ?

For SabreLITE you need to use Boundary Devices tree. I am adding Eric
in Cc so he can provide you some more information if need.

The source code is available at github at
