I would say the same for S-mode. EFI booting should be an option, not
a requirement. I have M-mode U-boot working with bootelf to start BBL,
and at some point, I’m hoping we can have a M-mode linux kernel be
the SBI provider for S-mode kernels, which seem most logical to me
to start using the vmlinux elf binaries using something like kexec()
