If you were able to make things work with this check for >= 0.3, then you must
have it. Can you make it unofficially available somewhere? Or do we need some
sort of early-access license to access it. Because right now, as I said, this is
totally unusable.

Problem with this is that FSBL requires Vivado and the licensing. These tools
don't integrate well in a CI build environment. Since they don't change often,
I'll probably have to go down that road for now. Can I get away with just
building FSBL (boot.bin) from the Vivado tools, integrate this file as a binary
asset in my sdcard, then jump to the u-boot.img built using yocto and
