Replicant on Pinephone 1.2

Add basic support for the Pinephone 1.2 to Replicant

Replicant is the only fully free operating system for smartphones and tablets. All the other operating systems for smartphones and tablets use nonfree software to make some of the hardware components work (cellular network modem, GPS, graphics, etc). Replicant avoids that, either by writing free software replacement, by tweaking the system not to depend on it, or, as the last resort by not supporting the hardware component that depends on it.

The goals is to first adapt support for the Pinephone and various other hardware (mainly from GLODroid), to make it generic and reusable by other Android distributions and smartphones to improve collaboration between Android distributions using mainline linux kernels.
