Ubuntu 18.04 (Bionic Beaver) LTS for AML-S905X-CC (Le Potato) Preview Image 2

This is a quick update to the previous preview release 1 with a newer 4.14.49 kernel.

We fixed the USB/mali conflict and the USB ports will not hang if something is plugged into the OTG port while mali is enabled.

The reason for the long boot process is due mkswap taking what seems like forever on 18.04. We have not isolated the cause yet so we will continue to address that issue as well as many other kernel side features.

We will be creating a linux flashing utility to this platform for eMMC much akin to the fel-mass-storage utility for Allwinner boards. You will be able to directly flash SD, eMMC, and NOR via a Type A to Type A cable that is included with our eMMC modules.

Le Potato will be getting a little brother soon...
