Unfortunately, they use different CPUs and the TS-228 is not

None of the current ARM-based devices from QNAP are supported and it
seems unlikely they will be due to lack of kernel support in the
mainline kernel.

>From what I can tell:

* TS-x28 series (TS-128 and TS-228) and TAS-168 use a Realtek RTD1195
chip which is not supported at all.

* TS-x31 series (TS-131, TS-231 and TS-431) use a Freescale chip
which is not supported at all.

* TS-x31+ series (TS-231+ and TS-431+) and TS-x31P series (TS-131P,
TS-231P and TS-431P) use an Annapurna Labs Alpine AL-212 chip.  There
has been some work by consulting company Free Electrons on Alpine but
currently support is too basic.
