Hi, I recently tested the parabola rootfs on A10 OLinuxino Lime. It 
didn't boot. Linux-libre logo was displayed, but got stuck somewhere 
along the line, so never got to login. Arch Linux ARM rootfs booted ok. 
Unfortunately didn't try UART. Only write this, because it may be a 
problem across ARM devices.
