Hello All,


I wanted to understand how close is Freescale BSP kernel to Linus mainline kernel.Dow we need to really port all the free-scale BSP kernel release version patches/Bug fixes starting from imx_3.5.7_1.0.0_alpha  imx_3.10.17_1.0.0_beta,imx_3.10.17_1.0.0_ga can be found here linux-2.6-imx.git - Freescale i.MX Linux Tree  to mainline kernel version. For example I would like to select the Kernel 3.14 or 3.18 from mainline and wanted to run on sabre-lite reference Board.I know mainline kernel will work on sabre-lite reference board out of the box. but I am not sure whether all the Free-scale BSP patched/bug fixes already included in mainline kernel if not, then I am sure that we would need to port the change to mainline kernel.


I would be very thankful if someone help me out and confirm my understanding.
