Even if you try to ignore it, I'm afraid you will have to finally
face the naked facts: your board _is_not_ a Sequoia board, and trying
to run code specific to Sequoia simply _does_not_work_.

You need a port of Linux TO YOUR HARDWARE.  You CANNOT run an
arbitrary other port, even if the boards seem "similar" to you.

Best regards,
