We could also ask for some arm64 board(s) that are already supported in
upstream u-boot and Linux.

The only arm64 board I have has an integrated bootloader with
(unsigned) nonfree software, but it's supported by Linux upstream, so I
could at least test the linux-libre-aarch64 kernel on it.

To fully support arm64 we would need to package some bootloaders as
well.

Right now I'm also too busy with other things, so if someone else want
to try it would be great.

Once you do, it would be a good idea to contact Paul Kocialkowski to try
to get a servo too. This would give us the ability to get the boot logs
through the serial port. It's probably also nice to do automatic
testing on the device as it can probably control it completely through
software.
