Dear Igor,

Thanks a lot for your quick responses and really appreciate the same.


Could you please do the needful in clarifying the following:

1. As all our BSPs for other hardware platforms from different vendors was developed in yocto sumo version, And now for imx8mm we are planning to migrate to yocto sumo version , does the BSP's i.MX Yocto Project User's Guide, Rev. L4.14.62_1.0.0_beta, 11/2018 have the board support and drivers for imx8mm?

2. Could you please let me know what is the difference between linux-imx maintained in code aurora and mainline linux that is maintained in kernel.org, if there is a difference is it imx8mm board specific changes?, could you please let me know what are those board specific changes that is ported on mainline linux?

3. Could you please let me know as our next step is to move towards to real time linux due to latency issues for our product on imx8mm board, does NXP have any separate bsp branches for real time linux v4.14.62 for imx8mm?

4. If there is no difference between linux-imx maintained in code aurora and mainline linux that is maintained in kernel.org, Am planning to use "kernel/git/rt/linux-stable-rt.git - Unnamed repository; edit this file 'description' to name the rep..." (v4.14.62-rt39)" instead of L4.14.62 (if it (v4.14.62-rt39already has imx8mm support on it) . Could you please let me know do you forsee any issues on BSPs or drivers for imx8mm in using "kernel/git/rt/linux-stable-rt.git - Unnamed repository; edit this file 'description' to name the rep..." (v4.14.62-rt39)?, on the other hand if there is a difference , could you please let me know, what are all the imx8mm board specific changes that needs to be ported on imx8mm?

Kindly do the needful 

Many Thanks in advance,
