Good to know. I'm glad I didn't waste too much time and getting further lost. 

Basically I need to pour through the different arm repo's and puzzle what I can for
NXP/Freescale i.MX8MQ with 4x ARM Cortex-A53 cores (1.5 GHz), 1x Cortex-M4F core.

not familiar with paqfs. So that was interesting but I could comment all that out. 

This is an MNT reform laptop. After putting it together it seems pretty stable and I'm interest
in porting plan9 to this thing. I expect I might need to dig into the ARM® Cortex®-A53 MPCore Processor
Revision: r0p3 and try to figure this thing out. 

But before I do this has anyone made any headway in this area? I'm enjoying the laptop. The keyboard
is a bit funky the mapping is different but all in all its enjoyable laptop and a bit sturdy. 

Recommendations greatly welcomed.

Regards, 
-Will
