Well, I can compile the v5.4 pvrsrvkm and load it but then the kernel panics.

Most likely clocks or something else are not properly initialized and
there could also be a problem with address translation. Or there may also
be a bug in the device tree entry.

I just had too much trouble running the latest kernels on CI20 so that
I could not research for GPU issues.

Working HDMI and DRM is needed to make the pvrsrvctl and demo programs
work. At least on OMAP they just complain that there is no display and
refuse to work. So you don't know if it could work at all.

Unfortunately I did not find time to pick up this work and try to make it

Generally we have an openpvrsgx mailing list which also is for jz4780/CI20.

BR and thanks,
