Just FYI, I was able to compile the driver but can't load it. If this is
truly suppported for other reasons, I'd stop tinkering with it.

[ 323.576447] rpi_ft5406: loading out-of-tree module taints kernel.

--------------------


The workaround to add modprobe.blacklist=vc4 to the kernel command line
does seem to work. I don't absolutely need the touchscreen support and
would be running headless for the most part but just want to see if I
can make it work and test the GUI without attaching an external monitor.


Hi
Did you set /etc/modprobe.d/10-unsupported-modules.conf to 1 ?
