Hi Martin.

I have a TV box S812 MXIII_Plus (2\16 eMMC), and the 2 model S805 (1\8 
NAND). I know there are several users with different models s802 s805 
s812 who are willing to participate in testing. Today I tried to use 
Your kernel (branch meson-mx integration-4.12-20170506-5) to build a 
test image Armbian (Ubuntu server). The kernel runs, but the system 
fully not starts, stops without error message. I think this is due to 
the fact that I use dtb data that is not priznachena for my model s812. 
I have asked members from the forum Armbian check out this image 
(kernel) on different models s8xxx. I hope that in a short time, you 
should see information from other users about how to start Your kernel 
on different models s8xxx. Soon I'll try to check - another of my 
existing models s805 and will report the results. You can write, and 
what else to check.
