They will ensure Android will support the chipset, and that means Linux will.

Whoa, hold your horses here!

Who said that Android support means Linux support?

Qualcomm's Android Linux kernel drivers are proprietary junk tied to Android userspace AND a particular version of the Linux kernel, which is why major Linux kernel versions for one device rarely get upgraded to the next.

It makes them money to sell devices, not maintain older ones.
