These are now merged in 2019.07-rc3.

These were not yet.

I have two oustanding issues... with some files it sometimes fails to
load one or more from SATA:

Retrieving file: /boot/initrd.img-5.0.0-trunk-armmp
20077960 bytes read in 375 ms (51.1 MiB/s)

Retrieving file: /usr/lib/linux-image-5.0.0-trunk-armmp/imx6q-novena.dtb

ERROR: v7_outer_cache_inval_range - start address is not aligned -
ERROR: v7_outer_cache_inval_range - stop address is not aligned -
invalid extent block

It then falls back to one of the other kernels (using the extlinux.conf
parsing) and succeeds. It consistantly gets a cache/alignment error with
this specific file. A bit-for-bit identical .dtb loaded from another
path works just fine. Older versions of u-boot boot this fine. Would
some particular EXT4 flag possibly be causing issues?

Several other kernel+initrd+dtb combinations work fine.

I have not noticed issues loading from PXE.

The second issue is still using one out of four exposed USB ports fails
and resets the board:

load usb 0:1 $kernel_addr_r misc/Binaries/linux/Image
data abort

Resetting CPU ...

The three other usb ports work just fine with the same USB stick and
file. All four ports work with 2019.01.

Despite those two issues somewhat significant issues... it does appear
to work in general... so, with 2019.07-rc3 +
https://patchwork.ozlabs.org/project/uboot/list/?series=108463 and this
series applied, with the above caveats:
