Technically, Arch kernel is vanilla kernel with some patches. Or this is the information that Arch wiki has.

I don't know what advanced is git respect the stable version. However, I checked that 4.3 is released, so I'll install it this afternoon. I'll comment about the backlight tricky.

Just create live disk with livecd creator https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/How_t...d_use_Live_USB

And select it as boot source in efi(bios). You'll need usb otg cable and usb keyboard.

What version I should choose? Fedora Live Workstation x86_64 or i686?

I can't boot fedora x86_64. I think because it does not have 32-bit efi bootloader. Have you copied some additional files to live usb before boot?

Can you boot from fedora live image?
After successful installation you have to add bootia32.efi from https://github.com/jfwells/linux-asu...t/bootia32.efi or compile it from source. Copy it alongside with bootia64.efi and copy grub.cfg to /boot/grub/.

I can't boot from fedora live usb image. I've tried add bootia32.efi but after choose 'Start Fedora live' nothing happens. I've also tried boot Fedlet 20150810 - it works ok.

What image did you try?

Finally I've got stable mmc, W/O freezes and!!! Backlight support.(in current mainline kernel).
All I need now is to fix #DO NOT TOUCH SCREEN WHEN USING STYLUS stuff. I hate that X server stops to receive further touch events after a while.

1. I've created live usb disk: livecd-iso-to-disk --format --reset-mbr --efi Desktop/Fedora-Live-Workstation-x86_64-23-10.iso /dev/sdb
2. I've added https://github.com/jfwells/linux-asu...t/bootia32.efi to /efi/boot there.
3. When I tried to boot there grub prompt.
What should I do next?

grub prompt is good already. now just try to copy grub.cfg to efi/boot/grub/grub.cfg and you'll get menu.

I'm using upstream mainline kernel.
I've applied some patches. (https://lkml.org/lkml/2015/3/24/271)
and to get have stable sdio bus you need to add intel_idle.max_cstate=0 to kernel parameters.

Still, no sound for now.

Thanks! Finally it works. I can boot.
I've copied /efi/boot/grub.cfg to /boot/grub/grub.cfg and changed linuxefi to linux and initrdefi to initrd there.

Are there some problems in installation process?

No, you can follow default installation path. The only thing I recommend is add intel_idle.max_cstate=0 to live usb kernel boot parameters to make sure installation completes ok.
Then you'll have to to the same you did with usb image:
1. cp generated grub.cfg to resulting /boot/efi/boot/grub/grub.cfg
2. replace all linuxefi,initrdefi with linux,initrd
3. add intel_idle.max_cstate=0 to kernel parameters.
4. Next compile vanilla kernel and modify grub.cfg by hands. add new menuentry with vanila kernel paths.
