contemplating conversion of an r-pi3b based system to a rock64

Greetings all;

What sort of problems due to internal architecture changes would I 
encounter? Currently using an rt-prempt version of 4.4.4 kernel labeled 
kernel7 since no later armhf/v7 kernel rt build has even usable 
keyboard/mouse support, with or without the extra usb2 hub for the 
dongles. This extra hub will be used in any event since the box its 
mounted in will eventually be buttoned up, severely restricting the 
range of the wireless dongles.

This one is usable if rebooted repeatedly until it mostly works. But 
you've got to be chewing kentucky's finest twist and holding your mouth 
just so, otherwise it throws more keyboard/mouse events in the trash 
than it responds properly to.  The potential for fixing this is the 
driver for switching to a rock64.

Suggestions as to where to src a suitable image for the rock64, hopefully 
one compatible with the current rpspi.ko driver (available as part of 
any recent linuxcnc install from buildbot.linuxcnc.org for armhf's, 
since except for keyboard/mouse, video(hdmi,mali drivers a huge plus) 
and LAN net stuffs, all other i/o is thru the gpio for this application, 
will be investigated.

Thank you.

Cheers, Gene Heskett
