     398 1. SPI does not currently support full-duplex - issue is being investigated with Cavium
     399 2. RS485 has not yet been fully validated but uses the same shared transceiver as RS232 which has been validated. RS485 half duplex mode would require adding support for TIOCSRS485 or managing the TXEN GPIO (gpio12) from userspace.
     400 3. Requires a board with a Mezzanine connector.
     401 4. HW Compression offload is supported (DEV_CAVIUM_ZIP drivers/crypto/cavium/zip.c) and crypto is supported (DEV_CAVIUM_CPT drivers/crypto/cavium) although there may be additional features that could be supported with additional driver work.
