Hi Stefan!

I got it working also there. I do have RPi2 but I doubt it will run there as 
it's just not that powerful.

Yes, the focus should be on mainlining these changes first.

I know there is some open source bootloader which is already packaged in Guix 
`raspi-arm64-chainloader`. Maybe this would be the way in the future :-)

Good luck
