I have tested this patchset on both fuloong 2f and 2e boxes.
It works well except for that duplicated #include's problem.
However, there is an annoying problem. The system type on these two boxes
has an "-unknowninch" ending, which does not make any sense at all.
So I made a patch on top of your patchset which makes kernel param
machtype=lemote-yeeloong-2f-7inch work as before, while on fuloongs return
system types like "lemote-fuloong-2e-box" and is less intrusive againt
I will post this patch after I test the patchset on yeeloong 8.9 notebook.
