Thanks for testing this Daniel,

The target code still needs some work, I only added this to test the
generic code.

I used a Xunlong Orange Pi R1 (Allwinner H3) and got 94 Mbits/sec in RX
and TX on both LAN ports (Allwinner MAC and Realtek USB MAC).

Ok, I will add it.

I think there are still some pull requests open where people want to
backport these features to 4.14, we should probably at least activate
them in the kernel where they are available.

I think the non video parts are well supported in mainline by now, is
there something particular interesting this this repository?
