Hi Geoff,

I realize you had been removed from the recipient list when I replied the below, so I'm not sure you got my message.
What do you mean by "it doesn't boot"? I certainly would like to understand why it works for me and not for you.

Hi Guodong,

Have the necessary DTS entries been merged for 4.5?

We should really get Hikey working with ARM64 defconfig in "mainline"
- that is, no additional patches should be required.

I don't know what specific issue the OP is experiencing, but FWIW I _can_ boot vanilla 4.4 on my board with the default config:

root@HiKey:/ uname -a
Linux HiKey 4.4.0 #142 SMP PREEMPT Mon Jan 18 09:07:06 CET 2016 aarch64 GNU/Linux
root@HiKey:/ gunzip -c /proc/config.gz | md5sum
dc59a664c9e9f4fb9078cf9ccf127271  -

$ make -C linux ARCH=arm64 defconfig
$ md5sum linux/.config
dc59a664c9e9f4fb9078cf9ccf127271  linux/.config
