Well, things are moving - Just not always as fast as you could hope. TI
is certainly not the worst vendor, but we're not there yet for am335x.

I think the best way forward in the short term would be if somebody
would maintain a git tree containing the kernel sources and Koen's patch
set applied on top, and once in a while sync / send a patch to buildroot
to update the git revision the bbb config uses.
