Great, finally someone interested in this niche target.

Looks like not much changed since Tegra 2 days.

Hmm..., last time I checked NVIDIA usually only provided modified binaries for user-space.
In Tegra2&3 days they rarely published the sources of their changes, only compiled
libraries with headers, did it change since that time? Did they start to push their
implementations upstream?

This would be similar split as in mvebu, where one subtarget would be armv7 and second one
a armv8. They probably won't share many drivers, but that's not much of a concern.
The boot procedure probably changed which means the SD card image structure also changed,
but that shouldn't be much of a problem.

Yes, I'll gladly help with it in any way I can.
