Thank you a lot for updating kernel to 5.4 for arc770! Unfortunately we do not have access to boards with arc770,
so we are not able to test the image right now. By the way we ran Linux kernel v5.4(built by buildroot)
on arc770 board and it worked well. I guess we can apply this patch and if any issue appears we will fix it.
Thanks and best regards,
