We made an effort to remove all deviations from the Linux device
trees, when adding support to GENERIC config. Therefore any
customisation is no longer needed (it was added long time before 12
release). We also used unmodified u-boot from Marvell repos all the
time. I need to check and help you (but not before the weekend :) ).

Thanks. IMO the platform is in really good shape, both functionally
and in terms of performance.

Best regards,
