For anyone who is interested there is a open source OpenOCD / GDB WIP debug
solution available for HiKey.
I've created a wiki page here
Which documents the hardware setup, where you can get the code, and a
overview of what is currently working.
Thanks to Philip Attfield who has already provided some patches to overcome
several issues I was facing with read_memory and GDB config.
Please feel free to update the wiki page with any additional info you find
out (thanks to Dan Thompson for already doing this), and patches making
OpenOCD support for HiKey even better are most welcome :)

On behalf of the Linaro Qualcomm Landing team,
After some unrelated delay, I have started using my Dragonboard. I
downloaded a Linaro customized Ubuntu image:
I was very surprised to find out that the IP network stack is broken on
this image (cf. RFC 6540). The Kernel has been built with IPv6 disabled.
This means I can't reach a substantial part of my test network and my
Who at LINARO do I need to poke to get this fixed?
PS: The ZIP file contains a license file that seems to imply that ALL
contents are copyright QTI and subject to a proprietary license. I'm
rather sure Linus and a few other people would disagree with that.
Someone might want to fix that.
So I built hikey ATF and l-loader for the first time and seemed to be able to flash the l-loader.bin
However, the serial log shows this, what did I do wrong ?
