I’ve been comparing Ubuntu and Arch on the Espressobin, and it turns out they use different device tree files with somewhat difficult content. Is there a reasons for that?
Arch version: https://github.com/kmihelich/linux-espressobin/blob/afaa2b4bed0322af220b170e554b0fa02cd0fabf/arch/arm64/boot/dts/marvell/armada-3720-espressobin.dts
Ubuntu version: https://github.com/MarvellEmbeddedProcessors/linux-marvell/blob/linux-4.4.8/arch/arm64/boot/dts/marvell/armada-3720-community.dts
The Arch version seems more correct and specific to the Espressobin board.
This Arch tree doesn’t seem to work very well – at least one of the Marvell network drivers doesn’t build (resulting in it not detecting the switch and two network ports not working as a result). The mvebu PCIe driver in it doesn’t build either
