Bear in mind that page is regarding the code in the "Allwinner (Lichee)"
kernel. This does not reflect the code made by the sunxi community to
enable graphics output on mainline.

Besides the code from Allwinner, even with the proper licencing, is not
mainline material. Very quick and dirty code and hacks.

H3 support is mostly hindered by availability and interest.
