Luke if you really want to fix this a good solution is to have
Allwinner join Linaro and provide an engineer to the Linaro effort.
That engineer will get educated on the right way to do kernel
development and he can pass that knowledge back to Allwinner each day
as he learns it.

Allwinner has expressed interest in the past in joining Linaro but the
price was too high. I believe there are cheaper options now for
joining. The benefits Allwinner receives from joining will far exceed
the cost of joining. The net result will likely be a reduction in the
amount they need to spend on in-house development since they will
learn how to better leverage other developer's work.
