Code hasn't been touch since 2015 and doesn't even compile.
If someone want to add support again for this SoCs and newers ones version control is your friend.

You should also delete the AML8726 kernel config which is useless w/o this stuff.
How long has it been broken? I see it's tagged as NO_UNIVERSE last summer as part of the INTRNG stuff, was that when it died?
6 months broken is close the limit on how long something should be broken in the tree.

What if Amlogic come up with some new ARMv7/v8 SoC later? They will probably reuse some peripheral devices from their old SoCs.
Look like it is plenty of drivers here in this port, or it is just stubs ? MMC, uart, usb, sdxc, i2c, gpio, fb, etc

My 2c, the code builds and boots fine if I use the odroidc1.dts with the meson.dtsi before this revision: 324820. I try to give it a chance.

I would also ask John Wehle as he wrote all of the codes to support AML8726 SoC and probably he still have the hardware to test.

The reality is I've been caught up with other events in my life
and don't see working on the amlogic stuff happening in the near
term. I'm happy if someone wants to take it over and certainly
understand that if the decision is to remove it from the tree.
