It was previously using the original hacked up Debian maintained by a volunteer. I am really grateful to mrfixit2001 for their efforts, but I'm also happy to have hardware support in the official kernel too.
I had to do some minor hackery to get the upgrade image to work, though. Probably because I installed it on a 4gb sdcard.
