Ubuntu (Canonical) assures us no one would be affected. Hope so for all their derivates like Linaro.
Its a lot of work getting ARM embedded systems to compile and run because a lot of driver settings and issues.
I normally try to max out the settings to have as much logical features as possible enabled before compiling kernel and then bug hunt the rest for drivers and issues that fail when trying to boot up Linaro.
I don't know if Linaro has gone systemd yet, but I thought I saw something that mention systemd for future releases.
Anyway a challenge :)
