I cannot say for sure how it works on the Banana Pi M3, but at least
on the Pinebook, U-Boot loads /efi/boot/bootaa64.efi from the FAT
partition - that then loads the NetBSD kernel on the FFS partition.
Linux uses boot.scr but we don't.

Does the image from invisible.ca also not boot?  And what exactly does
"not boot" mean here, does the screen stay black or do you get some
output but errors?
