I only went as far as using guix to build the bootloaders and manually
install them, and tested that they successfully booted... Debian. :)

The boards I tested on were only single-core with 512MB of ram, so would
be a bit difficult to run GuixSD on.

However, this u-boot build should also work on the Wandboard Quad or
CuBox-i4, which have quad-core CPUs and 2-4GB of ram, which might
actually be useable with GuixSD. There's also been recent good progress
on free graphics drivers for this family of SoC.

Thanks for having such a nice project to contribute patches to!

I've got some work-in-progress on a few more boards, but haven't had a
chance to boot test them, and some with non-trivial changes (at least
with my rank beginner guile skills)... will submit eventually. :)

live well,
