That message went on to say the following, although you omitted it here:

Based on what you wrote, it sounds like it could either be a
hardware-specific problem, or else a kernel-configuration-specific
problem, since you used radically different kernel configurations in
these two cases.

If I understand correctly, 'linux-libre-arm-generic@5.4' is the variant
that panicked on an rk3288, whereas the 'linux-libre@5.4' variant with
our hand-crafted default configuration worked on an imx6.

I don't know whether it's possible to use precisely the same kernel
configuration on these two systems.  Anyway, it would be helpful to
retry the 'iwd' build on these two devices with kernel versions and
configurations that are identical except for a minimal set of required
differences.  That would help us narrow down the set of possible causes
for this kernel panic.

What do you think?
