It would be awesome to be able to run U-Boot on i9300. Is there a way to
test this by not risking to brick the device, e.g. by booting from the
SD card? Then I could send an updated version of the patch that is
compatible with U-Boot :)

I absolutely understand that. Having the patch in mainline doesn't make
much sense if it's not compatible with U-Boot.

Best regards,
