For the new Exynos chips - I think Samsung folks are working on them.
Indeed it looks like the pace for new chips has slowed down.
The Nexell series are similar to Exynos but this is different company
so probably they would end up in different sub-arch. Only some IP
blocks are similar to Exynos even though the datasheet has Samsung
marks. I saw patches for U-Boot (I do not remember the author) so
maybe soon something will happen on LKML.
