Hi Peter.
Thanks for the tip.

I looked at the code, it appears that the Pine64 starts in 32bit SPL and jumps
to U-boot in 64bit mode.
This is done in a way which is not compatible with Snapdragons.
Although it's possible to implement Snapdragon with SPL, but I think it's an
overhead and I generally prefer just to run U-boot completely in 32bit mode.

Thanks,
Ramon.
