Do you have an exact status of the different platform device support ?
How do you deal with the audio/video support (for instance firmware
loading & their rpc stuff) ?

Do you know the differences between the different versions and/or have
public specs of the SoCs ?
Also, I'm seeing a lot of rtd128x in the file names... Commercial name
for the Venus is rtd1261 for instance. I find this really
confusing. I would be tempted to use mach-realtek but I don't know
enough the realtek mips SoCs to say if it's a good idea.
