afaik, the mainline support for this board lacks proper vpu support.
in addition, due to the patchwork issue, my last bunch of patches of mainline support were lost and got ignored so I've decided to stop pursuing this matter.

as said in another mail here, I'm unable to boot the board as I've misplaced the ac adapter, I can try looking for it again but it won't be until the weekend.
you said a while ago you have access to such board, if you have time to bump the vendor kernel and uboot revs to latest and test if it works, maybe this issue can be resolved without dropping support for this board.
