the quickest way to find that out would be to boot the seL4 and NOVA ISO
images that we provided along with Genode 16.05 from a USB stick. You
can find the images here:

I recommended AMT solely for its serial-over-line (SOL) feature. Without
it, it is very hard to debug low-level problems. In case you don't
intend to work on such a low level (device drivers, kernel) but merely
use Genode or work on higher-level components, it is not important at
all. It is also worth noting that we (in particular Alex) are
investigating alternative ways to obtain low-level log output:

Zynq is a good choice as it is actively being used and maintained by
Johannes Schlatow. At Genode Labs, we currently focus on Freescale i.MX,
i.e., i.MX6-based devices.

I am not aware of any current plans to support ARMv8.
Speaking from Genode Labs's perspective, we'd be open to pursue such a
development as a commissioned project but not on our own account.
