So currently, should we simply submit individual Aspeed patches to the mailing list for the review process?
In fact, we have sent certain patches couple days ago. (http://patchwork.ozlabs.org/project/uboot/cover/20200803093610.3222-1-chiawei_wang@aspeedtech.com/)
If it is the case, we will proceed the patch submission for Aspeed SoCs after the review is done.
