Nice !

feel invited to open up a feature issue on github and we may discuss and
streamline patches in a clean way.

It's right that we plan seL4 and ARM support, but as said on the roadmap
website, nothing is set in stone (e.g. because of high prior
commissioned contract work which may come in at any point in time). So,
I would not bet on this to happen, at least not bet on the schedule ...

Additionally, we would only add support to SoCs we see a need for, have
physical access to and therefore may also test. The whole zoo of ARM
SoCs can't be managed by GenodeLabs alone. That means specifically, that
your desired board may not be part of this line of work.

Why I'm talking about this ? If you have a need for Genode/seL4 and have
already something running, please open up a feature issue on github and
we will see how we get it upstream. Just waiting for things to happen is
the worst thing we can do, community wise.
