The Linux kernel v. 4.14 has been released:

https://kernelnewbies.org/Linux_4.14

This release includes fixes for both the GPD Win and GPD Pocket devices:

https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel...8b5312cc4455cfe

CODE
- add DMI quirk table for x86 systems which need fbcon rotation (devices like Asus T100HA, GPD Pocket, the GPD win and the I.T.Works TW891) (Hans de Goede)
(...)
* tag 'fbdev-v4.14' of git://github.com/bzolnier/linux: (75 commits)
video/console: Update BIOS dates list for GPD win console rotation DMI quirk
(...)
video/console: Add new BIOS date for GPD pocket to dmi quirk table

(please let me know if you find any other fix not included here)

I couldn't find anything related to the Gemini PDA.

In the meanwhile, work is in progress to fix the bugs which are preventing the latest kernel to run on the Zaurus:
- the problem with the screen backlight on Corgi and all the later models has been fixed and merged by Robert Jarzmik, the fix will be released in 4.16: https://www.spinics.net/lists/kernel/msg2624470.html
- it was not possible to compile the kernel with GCC v7, fixed in 4.15
- new sharpslpart partition parser by Andrea "ant" Adami, to be released in 4.16: https://lkml.org/lkml/2017/8/14/863
- large CF cards support by greguu
- fixes for the Collie kexecboot support, for now the latest working kernel is 4.4

Thanks to ant, greguu, Robert Jarzmik and all the others who are helping to bring the latest kernel to the Zaurus!
