Ayufan 5.4.0 rc1 release - cannot boot
After installing ayufans patched mainline kernel (I want panfrost) onto his minimal buster and bionic builds, I cannot boot past a certain point.  Here's what I see on serial console before it dies:

[   47.917722] Run /init as init process

[  106.312466] systemd[1]: Freezing execution.

So it looks like we can't mount root with ayufans mainline.  Has anyone managed to get this working?
Yeah, I tried the 0.9.16-11163 release: when I added the 5.4.0-rc1 kernel I could not boot either from just an SDcard nor from just eMMC. I don't have a serial console so cannot confirm my hangs are the same as yours but would guess so.

{I also have the same lack of progress with 5.3.0-rc4 }
* ROCKPro64 v2.1 2GB, 16Gb eMMC for rootfs, SX8200Pro 512GB NVMe for /home, HDMI video & sound, Bluetooth keyboard & mouse. Started Bionic minimal - now eoan, Openbox desktop for general purpose daily PC.
* PinePhone BraveHeart :-)
Its probably a bit late but in case somebody is still interested in it.

The Kernel should boot if you apply the following changes:
Edit file arch/arm64/configs/rockchip_linux_defconfig

Search for the following line:

Replace it with the following config settings:

Rebuild kernel with the new config settings and it should boot now.
