We have multiple GX1 based boards supported in v2, you can support the
cocom by modifying one of them (e.g. try asi/mb_5blmp) to your needs.
Shouldn't be too much work, these GX1 boards are mostly very similar.

You can use the v1 code as reference (i.e. to lookup cocom-specific
data), but I would not invest any time into v1 code anymore. Just
support the board in v2...

Let us know if you need help or have any questions! And please post a
(signed-off) patch if you get it to work!

Thanks, Uwe.
