Yes, I did not have this issue before. However... I installed the latest Peach
pit recovery image you provided me and mainline kernel started to hang on boot.
I remembered this thread so tested Kevin's patch which make it boot again.

You said that chain-booting u-boot runs the sound init code but did you try
booting a signed FIT image using the verified u-boot?

I'm asking because I'm see the hang both when chain-booting nv-u-boot from a
kernel partition and booting a signed FIT image with the verified u-boot.

So it seems this is a regression in latest U-boot and I didn't run into this
before due having an older RW U-Boot on my Peach pit?
