I assume that fastboot executes the loaded code on the main CPU not on
the boot CPU (AVP). U-Boot SPL on Tegra30 expects to start running on
the AVP though; you would have to disable SPL to make this all work, and
perhaps fix U-Boot to work without SPL present. I'm not sure what, if
any, changes would be required to support that.
