Jeff Dionne said he'd make himself available to answer hardware questions. (He
said he maintained some Linux ports 20 years ago, but isn't current with Linux
plumbing. Last month he was digging through the guts of vxworks, and the project
before that was some sort of BSD I think?)
I _do_ maintain Linux patches, I just generally don't bother to repost them
endlessly. Here's my "on top of 6.1" stack for example, each of which links to
at least one time it was posted to linux-kernel:

The turtle board is device tree and has been since it was merged. The
infrastructure is there, the question is converting over boards and testing
them, or deciding to prune them. Did Sato-san convert many boards? (I'm not
finding his patch via google...)
