We had a user with a Braswell system (Intel Pentium N3710) in IRC
yesterday, and he was not even able to *boot* into stretch normally
(hard-locked with a black screen and no logs written to disk, even in
rescue mode, unless he suppled the "nomodeset" kernel option).  He could
boot jessie, but the graphics ran without acceleration.

There's definitely some room for improvement in Debian's support of
Intel Braswell systems.  But we'll need a whole lot more information.
