The problem is ARM and partners aren't delivering what was expected
I recall a presentation from a Red Hat employee where ARM had agreed
that aarch64 needed a standard boot process so this craziness of
needing custom boot software for every board could be a thing of the
past. Hasn't happened, hence the problems supporting the hardware
