One problem is that most of these devices have only 32 bit UEFI which
FreeBSD does not support (except Intel Compute Stick which has 64 bit UEFI).
I use special built Grub to boot a 64 bit Arch Linux on this chip, maybe
same approach could be used to boot a 64 bit FreeBSD. However, you probably
won't be able to use the internal eMMC (if your device got it) since the
controller can not initiate mmc memory correctly. Work in progress here
though by me and Ilya.

On a side note,
it would though be nice to have 32 bit UEFI support on FreeBSD because that
would include support for Intel IoT boards like Galileo etc which are all
32 bit. Might be a lot of work though..
