configs/pinebook-pro-rk3399_defconfig but it still had the same issue...

bootcmd does not get updated to use bootstd instead of distro_bootcmd
... and distro_bootcmd is not defined, so it fails to boot! At least it
gets as far as a u-boot prompt!

As mentioned on irc, I wasn't able to get rockpro64-rk3399 to boot at
all (hanging at SPL), so cannot test if it also needs further changes
for BOOTSTD to work... and for good measure, rock64-rk3328 also fails in
the same way.

I also have puma-rk3399, firefly-rk3399 and firefly-rk3288 to
test... though might wait on some of those till the dust settles a

live well,
