    Target audience in this case are people that care about sustainability and security.

    The smaller the difference between the mainline linux kernel and the oneplus kernel devicetrees the easier it is to push updates fast and for a longer period of time.
    This would benefit all users that do not want to buy a new device just because it no longer gets updates as well as the producer that has less hassle with updates and bugs, because the kernel and graphic stack community of the linux universe is able to help with it.

    Therefore i would suggest OnePlus to upstream as much code as possible to mesa, the gpu drivers and the linux kernel in general.
