The following article suggests that an arm64 kernel and a 64bit OS might be in development by linaro, I hope we get to play with it soon.
make that july 11th.

It would help if that thread had a title that actually describes what the thread is about, in layman's terms.

While it is uncertain what further 64-bit kernel development might be done, the
software mentioned in the announcement is available in preliminary form.

This is a repo/manifest build. There should be no need to hunt around
for appropriate commits or releases. Use of different repositories or
commits may or may not result in a working system.

The build/configuration is evolving. At present the rootfs/runtime is busybox
based but without a lot of effort an alternate 64-bit Linux runtime (eg., Ubuntu
or debian-like) works well.

Onboard wifi does not work. The kernel is based upon Electron752 git repository
from the bare-metal/aarch64 thread. There are no immediate plans to make onboard
wifi work. USB wifi dongles are known to work.

Make certain to satisfy build prerequisites outlined at:
https://github.com/OP-TEE/optee_os#41-prerequisites
Without these the build will most likely fail.

Follow the directions at:
https://github.com/OP-TEE/optee_os/blob ... on/rpi3.md
This is still a work in progress with many moving parts.
