It took a while for there to be time for play...

Now running mainline u-boot and an almost mainline kernel (linux-rockchip for-next).

My power-supply looks like the limiting factor at the moment, openssl speed will happily run 2GHz @ 1.425v but to run that -multi 4 requires dropping to 1.73GHz @ 1.375v.

1.73GHz at 1.4v -multi 4 also bombs, suggesting that either the rpi powersupply or the onboard regulation just isn't beefy enough for this running full tilt.

Temps at the moment are manageble, peaking at 68C during multi4, that will of course not be the case if the speeds and voltages are bumped further. (currently using the stock heatsink and a PSU fan sat at the end of the board...)

Running headless at the moment, so sound and video not a concern. One minor niggle, especially during this crash-tastic testing is that while reboot works on Rockchip's 4.4 kernel, it doesn't seem to work with this 4.11-rc3 branch kernel.

One to dig into!

Full report once 4.12 comes out and hopefuly Stuart can add another one to his list
