For whatever is worth, I compiled v6.1.0 on my Fedora Intel laptop and 
the issue is not there either, so this seems closely related to aarch64 
and most likely to Ubuntu 18.04.5 as a host... and I am more and more 
afraid that it might have to do with the kernel configuration for the 
Jetson... I can recompile it if needed, so if there is some test that 
needs to be done to find out, I am happy to do.
