We've already enabled DRM on the 4.4 kernel with the framebuffer Xorg driver. What do you need on top of that to enable you do run Wayland/Weston? A link to a patchset would allow me to evaluate whether we can incorporate these into the next release.

are you planning to support DRM/KMS on 4.4 Kernel/Hikey? At LHG we are currently using a 4.5 Kernel snapshot with Wayland/Weston due to incomplete support of DRM/KMS extensions on 4.4. The main issue we saw on the 4.4 was the missing VBlank support in the DRM driver.

For the upcoming 16.03 release of the reference platform, we've been working on a unified kernel that works on Hikey, Dragonboard 410c and also enables enterprise HW that we have access to (D02, Overdrive, APM XGene).
That kernel is now pushed to github to the 96b/releases/2016.03 branch. It is based on the upstream kernel v4.4 and combines the work from the Hisilicon and Qualcomm landing teams with the enterprise bits coming from the Linaro Enterprise Group. A big thanks for their assistance in sorting out various integration issues.
Please note that this kernel tree will now be used only to host a unified kernel. The Hisilicon landing team has graciously agreed to modify their workflow and move their kernel tree to the 96boards-hikey namespace on github.
I'll be talking about the experience of putting together this tree at Connect BKK16 (including some patch statistics) and soliciting feedback on the roadmap for this kernel tree - please get in touch if you have ideas.
Look forward to more information about the release itself from Ricardo later.
