Why does mainline linux lack many of dts files that armbian has?


Because mainline kernel is a RAW generic material which we use, make certain (actually quite a lot of - we deal with base development) changes, add certain boards to it and distribute. Integration and acceptance to mainline kernel takes a lot of time and many things are never accepted / integrated. While they can be a part of Armbian for weeks, months, years. It's our burden of maintaining and advantage at the same time. The same goes for u-boot.
