Got a link to where you read this?

Ultimately there's no particular reason. It could be that the upstream
kernel driver doesn't support it yet, or there's not the glue in the
DeviceTree. The Fedora 20 remix, the one I assume you're referring to,
is based on a very old 3.4.x kernel series. Rawhide, which should
support this device with an appropriate uboot, has the 3.16 kernel
which supports this device which might have what you're after.
Ultimately I suggest testing it and seeing how you get on. The
AllWinner device support is fairly fast moving and there's literally
100s of them with all sorts of configurations and it's impossible to
test all combinations of use cases. It'll be easier to work out what's
missing once you have the base install on there.
