Buildroot 4.14 64bit: bcm2837-rpi-3 vs bcm2710-rpi-3?

Thu Apr 26, 2018 12:04 pm

I'm using buildroot and compiling the git linux tree at raspberrypi/linux.
I don't understand the situation with the appropriate kernel DTS for 64 bits.
Some defconfigs build both bcm2837-rpi-3 and bcm2710-rpi-3, IIRC Rpi 3 boots with bcm2710-rpi-3 alone, the 32 bit build requires bcm2837-rpi-3 and does not know what bcm2710-rpi-3 is.

To get a 64 system with all Pi 3 hardware working (I don't care much about HDMI/video for now):
- which of these files do I need?
- would the previous recommendation change in the foreseeable future?

Thanks in advance.
