Dear Gray,

thanks for reporting the issue with commit
fs: do_load: pass device path for efi payload

Is it only the fatload command that fails on your device or also the
load command?

There is no bug tracker for U-Boot. So sending a mail to the U-Boot
mailing list, the patch author, and the maintainer is the best way to
inform the developers about bugs.

Best regards
