I don't have 1st hand experience with the combination you're
referencing above, but peanut gallery comments

1) I'd encourage you to retry the default Cavium provided OS - I
realize that the package manager may not be fun, but they have thus
far been good about software support for our needs

2) Fedora has put quite a bit of effort into their AArch64 distro
I'm happy to connect you to people @ARM or @Cavium which is likely a
better support channel for critical software like this.
