That was the case with the i.MX6. Proprietary firmware had to be
loaded for the VPU to work,[1] but the GPU line was successfully
reverse-engineered[2] and integrated into Mesa. No bootloader blobs
either, definitely one of the best platforms for libre software.

That said, the i.MX8 is using a newer Vivante GPU, which apparently
hasn't been worked on yet.[3]
