Sounds good. Actually, I think any Fedora/ARM provided kernel should
just enable the same drivers and features as the Fedora kernel does on
It is not (yet) possible to build a single ARM kernel that works on
more than one ARM SoC, so the kernel build process would have to build
a bunch of different images for different hardware platforms, which
would require some kernel .spec file hacking. (But, there's already
some support in the spec file for something like this, so it probably
wouldn't be too hard to do.)
On top of that, there might be some hacking needed to produce working
initramfs'es on ARM, and we might have to add some tools to flash
kernel images on some popular boards, perhaps some tools to modify the
uboot environment from within Linux, etc.
initramfs - dracut works very well with a configuration that doesn't
include unneeded stuff to keep the image small
flashing kernel - flash-kernel utility from Debian should work (package
modify uboot - uboot has tools (fw_setenv) that can modify the uboot
environment, a package is work-in-progress
So the underlying infrastructure should be almost ready.
