Many years ago, someone was working on a MIPS port for Lustre and I believe they got it working, but I don't think the patches ever landed. You could make a quick search in bugzilla to see what changes they made, and update this for Arm as well.

Are you looking for client or server support?  My understanding is that Arm is only 32-bit today.  While we regularly build for 32-bit kernels, this is not tested automatically on master anymore so it is possible that there have been regressions in this area.

If be happy to hear your experiences in this area, and it would be a good time to land any patches needed to make Arm builds working.

Cheers, Andreas
