what is the purpose of linux-fslc git?

As of 3/22 the linux-fslc repo has been refreshed from downstream (kernel.org) to 5.4.28 but the support in imx-linux @ 5.4.3 for imx8mp is still missing.

 

We used to get imx-linux from freescale's git but now it is a separate development that is (somehow) upstream of linux-fslc?

 

Obviously we would prefer a vendor base repo but if imx8mp support is elsewhere...

 

 

imx-linux => linux-fslc => arm.linux.org.uk => kernel.org

-or-

imx-linux => arm.linux.org.uk => kernel.org

         \\                      //

           =>    linux-fslc    <=         (ie., linux-fslc is a merge bucket and has no downstream at all)

 

If there is a document that states is Freescale's intention for linux-fslc wrt its up-stream (imx-linux) and down-stream (git.arm.linux.org?) and its intended refresh rate, it would be service to your customers.
