AT91SAM9G20 support in mainstream kernels 4.x

Hello all,

I'd like to know what is the support status of the AT91SAM9G20 processor in vanilla kernels 4.x.

I'm aware that there is a dedicated AT91 kernel repository, but I'm trying to have one source for 2 boards from different manufacturers.

Kind regards,
Fernando A. E.

Did you inspect the mainline source tree?
Seems like that SoC (with a ARM926EJ-S processor) is actively supported just like every other SAM9 chip still in production.

FYI ETRAX SoCs (i.e. the CRIS architecture) ceased production in 2010, but there was support in mainline kernel for another eight years, until arch/cris was removed in 4.17.
Whereas the SAM9G20 is still in production, yet you have concerns?

Regards
