I was speaking of the driver written by Jean-Fran├žois Moine:

But some of it is based on AW's lichee code, and some of it would need
further informations (HDMI PHY model) from AW before being mainlinable.

I spoke last week about such things with Jean-Fran├žois.

I've got an H3 based SBC that I'm tinkering with, and a few others are
also working on it. But that's getting off topic.
