That doesn't help. I tried on cubieboard2 and bananapi.

From cubieboard2, there's a few that look rather important:

[ 0.000000] Additional per-CPU info printed with stalls.
[ 0.000000] Build-time adjustment of leaf fanout to 32.
[ 0.000000] RCU restricting CPUs from NR_CPUS=16 to nr_cpu_ids=2.
[ 0.000000] RCU: Adjusting geometry for rcu_fanout_leaf=32, nr_cpu_ids=2
[ 0.000000] NR_IRQS:16 nr_irqs:16 16
[ 0.000000] clk: couldn't get parent clock 0 for /clocks/ahb@01c20054
[ 0.000000] Failed to enable critical clock cpu
[ 0.000000] Failed to enable critical clock pll5_ddr
[ 0.000000] Failed to enable critical clock ahb_sdram
[ 0.000000] Architected cp15 timer(s) running at 24.00MHz (virt).
