I have been listening to the sound from potential users of bpi-r2 to
understand what assistance I have to provide to them. Something could
be seen through [1] in the forum to know they had been trying hard to
explore all available UARTs from the SoC in the last weeks. The patch
should be really useful for these people and for the extra soldering
it shouldn't become a problem for these makers.
