Firstly Aaron, don't let unproductive trolls drag you into
a decision making process. Over the years, I have learned you can choose
to ignore their comments. Absolutely nothing they can do about it :) :)
Eventually they go away and do some work and come back with
more productive comments.

For every quality post by a person such as yourself, you will find
up to 200 troll posts and rants snipping at you.
It is not economic to respond to these trolls and rants.
Its just a fact of life, trolls exist, just ignore them,
all of us do, there is *nothing* they can say or do which will dent
your reputation here :)

2nd, we all here because we all looked hard and find Allwinner chip
price and level of cooperation as a complete package, optimal.

If switching to alternative SoC, cooperation may be higher but SoC price
higher, or price may be lower but cooperation with open source world
low. Either way, open source products made with alternative SoCs liable
to become irrelevant to market.

This an opportunity for one of us to get rich, spend $1m buy ARM
license, and found RealWinner Corporation (TM) which will be first
company to make ARM chip with *SINGLE* header file that describes *ALL*
hardware registers and *ALL* bit fields.

So when RealWinner Corporation (TM) make the second chip, it takes mere
hours and days with new header file to port all previous work to it.

Sounds simple plan, and it really is that simple.

I do it all day with PIC chips. Sadly Microchip don't
make big SoCs to run Linux properly yet.

If they or ReallWinner Corporation (TM) made this first
true ARM SoC with single header file, they will *COMPLETELY*
sweep aside *ALL* other chip vendors as the open source
hoards descend on this chip and port absolutely everything
to this new chip with the single header file.
