Hello Sascha,

Thank you for this patch. Happy to test it here on rk3188 (radxa rock pro).

Using bb v2018.09.0. Applied your patches below. CONFIG_PBL_RELOCATABLE is 
fixed in menuconfig. Common config:

grep RELOCAT .config
CONFIG_PBL_RELOCATABLE=y
CONFIG_RELOCATABLE=y

Built using this script:

export ARCH=arm
#export CROSS_COMPILE=/usr/bin/arm-linux-gnueabihf-
export CROSS_COMPILE=/opt/OSELAS.Toolchain-2018.02.0/arm-v7m-eabi/gcc-7.3.1-
newlib-2.5.0-binutils-2.30/bin/arm-v7m-eabi-

rm .config
make clean
make ARCH=arm rk3188_defconfig && make -j 10

/rk-makebootable FlashData barebox-flash-image rrboot.bin
sudo dd if=rrboot.bin of=/dev/sdc bs=$((0x200)) seek=$((0x40))


Using Debian/Ubuntu cross compiler:

There still are a couple of (possibly unrelated) issues, independent of the 
compiler used:

1) envfs: no envfs (magic mismatch) - envfs never written?

2) mount: No such file or directory

3) setting root node failed: Device or resource busy

4) oftree: Device or resource busy

5) arch_number: 3066 [note: boot failure]



cheers
