This is the way to go, as robclark said:
tbh, with the exception of perhaps making phone calls (modem), upstream support for 8064 should be decent (like the work that john stultz did on n7 tablet).. so I probably wouldn't try too hard on ancient 3.4 stuff
You might find some helpful pointers about mainlining the device here.
There's a backport from 2013 of the freedreno to a 3.4 kernel in the kernel-msm repository, with two branches.
- This one compiles.
- The display is only "working" by using qcom's customized fbdev driver according to robclark, so it is a bit non-standard.
- Notably the USB networking was disabled in the kernel config (in favor for serial debugging?), but it should be possible to activate it again.
- package build recipe with GCC6 patches
