ARM64 EL2/EL3 - itsokimbatman - 03-06-2016

Will the PINE64 be able to load custom EL2 (Hypervisor) and EL3 (Secure Monitor) code? One of the reasons I'm buying the device is to get more familiar with the ARM64 architecture, and I'm very interested in how the Hypervisor and Secure Monitor modes work. 

Similarly, are there any other restrictions as to what code can run? Can we program directly on the bare metal with our own bootloader, OS, etc?
