Mainline

According to Documentation/arm/marvell.rst the PXA1908 chipset should be supported, but it is unknown whether it actually works.

Booting

The SM-G531F uses the Marvell PXA1908 chipset, which utilizes an uncommon way to specify the revision in DTB files, therefore the dtbTool from https://github.com/osm0sis/pxa-mkbootimg should be used. This is the same with mkbootimg. Additionally, SEANDROIDENFORCE should be appended to the bootimage, in order to silence the "KERNEL IS NOT SEANDROID ENFORCING" warning.
