I don't get the impression any of these patches were created for
git.yoctoproject.org/meta-rockchip. Although they apply, none of them actually
work. Or if they were intended for git.yoctoproject.org/meta-rockchip, then it
doesn't look like they were intended for the master branch (which is the
assumption when no branch tags are mentioned).

For example, many of these new MACHINEs indicate the Linux kernel
to use is "linux-rockchip" or "linux". Neither of these exist in
git.yoctoproject.org/meta-rockchip (or openembedded-core), so building any of
the MACHINEs introduced in these patches that specify either of these kernels
will fail.

git.yoctoproject.org/meta-rockchip is a community layer focused on providing
builds composed of upstream and open-source components (i.e. U-Boot from
git.denx.de/u-boot.git and the Linux kernel from kernel.org). Some BSP layers
(e.g. meta-freescale) are able to provide users with a switch so that builds
can be built either from vendor sources or upstream sources by setting one
parameter, but so far git.yoctoproject.org/meta-rockchip doesn't have this
functionality and my attempts to get this functionality integrated at a
higher level (i.e. instead of having every BSP layer implement this logic
independently) haven't met with success.

Best regards,
