Tested kernel using TFTP and loaded fine.

javierdlr@Sam460ex:~$ uname -a
Linux Sam460ex 4.8.0-sam460ex-jm #1 PREEMPT Wed Oct 5 09:46:30 AST 2016 ppc ppc ppc GNU/Linux


Any other test you need I can do?

THX for all SAM460 linux support. Awesome work mate!!!!!

BTW main diffs. between this 4.8.x kernel and 4.4.x? Any benefits of using 4.4.x instead of 4.8.x?

Thanks .

The 4.4 branch is a long term with support up to Feb 2018.
Also the real time clock works properly .
From the 4.6 branch onwards I have had to leave out the real time clock support because of an oops.

So better, for daily use kernel 4.4.x and for testing pourposes the 4.8.x (until a new LTS kernel shows up)?
