Hi Robert,

There are about 450 patches in the raspberrypi kernel on top of Linux
4.14. ;-)
What is the status of mainline support for the Raspberry Pis in kernel
4.14? For kernel 4.19 it probably makes sense to use mostly mainline
without many modifications, but would this also work for kernel 4.14?
