Hi All,

After a lot of hard work from many people involved, I'm very pleased to 
initial support for kernel 5.4 has been pushed to master with already a 
nice amount
of available targets.

If you are interested, feel free to test, send fixes or send patches for 
supporting 5.4 on other targets besides the ones mentioned below.

All supported targets have been provided with kernel 5.4 as the "Testing 
This means you can enable 5.4 by selecting "Global --> use the testing 
kernel version" within menuconfig.

*Big fat warning*

While a ton of effort has been conducted, trying to prevent mayhem and 
fixing as many bugs as possible,
support for 5.4 is still considered to be experimental at this point 
until extended testing has been conducted.

If you would like to try it, please make sure you are able to debrick 
your device if required.
If you still try it without any way of debricking it, you are doing so 
*at your own risk*

Following targets are currently available and have been runtime tested:

- apm821xx
- ath79
- bcm53xx
- imx6
- ipq40xx
- mediatek
- mpc85xx
- x86_64

Completely untested but provided as a baseline:

- ipq807x

Following targets are near completion and should be added hopefully next 

- cns3xxx
- octeontx
