stable/13 dmesg: https://gist.github.com/agrajag9/bf6325d4f3321d8d0ee566fee767e0d3

current dmesg: https://gist.github.com/6d07004fb3c6f0980d5e94627aaba060

_at_dmitry - just ignore all the DPAA2 stuff for now. We don't support it at all :'(

_at_mark - I was given a warning about i2c from SR's _at_jnettlet that it's possible to completely brick the system, although maybe they've solved that in the more recent SOC revisions?

The IORT warnings might be related to SMMU. I'll have to dig up my notes, I did a ton of work with Greg on this months ago and it seems that's been swapped out of brain memory onto cold storage somewhere. Possibly here? https://gist.github.com/agrajag9/ff3c52c11469dccb70e17a11cb9be2a9

Fans: I've had mixed success here. Lots of people went for a full watercooling loop with https://www.alphacool.com/shop/gpu-water-cooler/amd-gpu/11088/alphacool-hf-14-smart-motion-universal-copper-edition?c=20587

I'm just using https://www.radianheatsinks.com/product/inm37-5004-25pcu-2-6/ but others like http://www.enzotechnology.com/cnb_r1.htm

Either way, welcome to the party! I've been daily-driving mine as a desktop for a few months, although I still can't get drm-kmod's amdgpu to load properly - perhaps you can?
