Hi All,

The Linux 5.2 merge window is now open so I released the first alpha today.

It also includes:

  • X1000: pata_of_platform-v2 patch for solving the issues with new CF cards connected to the onboard CompactFlash Card Slot
  • X1000: Disabling the kernel config options CONFIG_PATA_PCMCIA, CONFIG_PCMCIA, and CONFIG_ELECTRA_CF for the pata_of_platform-v2 patch
  • X1000: compressed kernel (zImage) and uncompressed kernel (vmlinux)

Further information: CF cards test thread

BTW, I created a new PowerPC cross compiling environment on ubuntu MATE 18.04.2 LTS x86_64 (GCC 7.4.0) today. This kernel has been compiled with this new cross compiling environment.

@SailorMH
Please test it with your CF cards.
