Use sys-kernel/gentoo-kernel-bin as your kernel. You will need to manually edit the kernel configuration. First, select it as your kernel.
 
<code>eselect kernel list</code>
 
This should list only one option. Otherwise, select the number matching <code>linux-5.<whatever is latest>-gentoo-dist</code>, and cd into the kernel source directory.
 
<code>eselect kernel set <number>
 
cd /usr/src/linux</code>
 
Begin the kernel configuration
 
<code>make menuconfig</code>
 
At this point, you're almost on your own. I don't know a strict cause-and-effect relationship between my kernel config and the behavior of my system. For starters, just go into platform selection and deselect everything except rockchip platforms. Once you're done save your configuration and exit. Make sure boot is mounted, and your fstab is set up with your swap mounted.
 
<code>make
 
make modules
 
make dtbs
 
make install
 
make modules install
 
make dtbs_install
