We need the clock patches as well. If there is an agreed effort to
upstream the clock patches
and other bare minimum patches, I am happy to revise the DMA patches as well.

However, I am not sure all the patches should be beagleV or
starfive/starlight given the new announcement
from StarFive. Does anybody know if they are going to mass produce the
exact same SBC (JH7100) or some variant of it ?

Maybe we should defer upstreaming until we see the new board ? We
probably don't want two different versions of upstreaming support
for the same board!
