Re: Linux 3.7.1 - available for RPi

You're misinterpreting what I said; I was not at any time claiming that the code merged into 3.7 isn't enough to boot up. However, compared to the BCM code that exists in the RPi branch, I consider it a stub, but this is just a matter of arguing semantics; the bottom line is that it is far from feat...

For anyone interested, I've ported over the patchset from 3.6.y to 3.7, repo is here on GitHub: https://github.com/Olipro/linux-RPi For those interested, the process essentially consisted of cherry-picking the revlist of commits that exist on rpi-3.6.y but not 3.6.11 and then fixing up conflicts as ...
