That's great. Please keep hacking away on RISC-V support for kernelCI.
My point is just that the U-boot and OpenSBI software stack you're working
with is not going to be useful for automatic tests of some kernel patches
yet. That stack is still very new, and was written around a non-upstream
set of DT data. We are in the process of posting and merging patches to
fix that, but it's going to take a few releases of both the kernel and
those other boot stack components until things are sorted out in a more
durable way.
