Did not see the announcement here yet, so I guess it adds something here!

Finally (for what it's worth) the MALI GPU driver is supposed to work with the mainline kernels for our beloved Allwinner SOC's: click here (link to CNX). Announced kernel revisions are 4.6 - 4.14.
The article on cnx-software also mentions that the LIMA project is not completely dead...

So yes, a couple of years (too little) too late there will be support for your MALI GPU in mainline. There is still need to use the blobs....And no: this will not solve video-player acceleration shortcomings.

More details can be found here.

There is a kick starter by the same people now for a VPU driver which has already met the stretch goal for h3 and h5 x264 support https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/bootlin/allwinner-vpu-support-in-the-official-linux-kernel
