Supporting Allwinner SOC would really probabbly require a 3.0 or a 3.4 kernel from the linux-sunxi branch (https://github.com/linux-sunxi/linux-sunxi) as many patches have not made it to kernel.org, or searching around for the patches to apply to vanilla kernel (that will will be probabbly conceived for ither a 3.0 or a 3.4 kernel anyway).
But if you come up with something to test I can see if it works on my XZPAD700.
