Neal,

When you list the GPIO in Linux, they are exactly what the DTS defines.

No, I did not find Poweroff. However, shutdown is working fine in Debian, so looks like there is no GPIO for Poweroff.

There are other GPIOs that this u-boot defines, but they don't seem to have any effect when I poke them.

Without GPL source code, it will take too much time to complete a new u-boot for this box.

That's a shame, but you've done quite a lot! Thanks for all the work you've put into making this into a quite capable little server!

The M300 went into production today with the 120GB SSD and the cover installed. It's had a week or two of burn-in and several successful boots. No haveged, I just wait. The SSD is secured with zip ties through a couple of fittings installed in the tapped holes in the enclosure on each side of the SSD. Working great. Thanks Bodhi!

FYI, there are mainline works going on for kernel 5.4.x which will solve the entropy delay issue.
