Is there a kernel-5.4 option for the HC1 (XU3)?

I've successfully built a general-purpose home server using the ODROID HC1 which is running kernel 4.14.180 from the archlinuxARM repository.

Going forwards, I have purchased additional hardware to mitigate any upcoming hardware failure or discontinuation of manufacture.

I would also like to ask about the availability of a more recent LTS kernel e.g. 5.4.x. I see that Hardkernel have migrated their Ubuntu-minimal images to that version. Is there any chance that archlinuxARM will provide a 5.4 kernel for XU3/HC1/HC2 etc?

It might be possible to use the mainline linux package with the C1. A while ago, I did this with the C2. Search on the odroid forum under my name to find the instructions if you want to try it.
