Latest images from different distros failing to boot from SD card
Ok, I've gotten a little further on this. I booted up an older Armbian image, Armbian_19.11.3_Pinebook-a64_bionic_current_5.3.9_desktop. It didn't boot into the desktop environment (I assumed it would with the "desktop" designation, maybe I'm wrong). But the screen did flicker while going through the boot up process. However instead of just going blank after that, it came back with an error message:

PM: dpm_run_callback(): pm_generic_suspend+0x0/0x40 returns -38
PM: Device mmc1:0001:1 failed to suspend async: error -38
PM: Some devices failed to suspend, or early wake event detected
... (repeated a few times)

I was able to login and go through the user setup process, but this error would just keep popping up and interrupting. At least it would not go completely unresponsive. 

It would seem weird that it would be trying to suspend during the boot up, could this be an "early wake event" from the OS currently installed on the eMMC? I'm assuming mmc1:0001:1 is the eMMC, or could it be the SD card? How would I find out?
