I think that the discontinued beta prototype could be useful as a native
build host for those of you that have it and don't have an Unmatched.

The arch_sync_dma RFC from Atish [1] is key to the board running
mainline. Most of the peripherals (USB, SD card, ethernet) are already
supported by upstream Cadence and Synopsys drivers. However, the vendor
kernel used ifdef's to flush the L2 cache at several points in those
drivers and subsystem cores because the peripherals are on a non-cache
coherent interconnect.

Without the proposed solution from Atish that uses the non-cached DDR
alias, then only serial console would work on mainline (assuming the 
system is running from a ramdisk that the vendor uboot loaded).

Thanks,
Drew
