{{note|Here's where you'd do the part I said was undocumented and won't be necessary with 5.16 anymore. You'll need an Arch Linux or Manjaro system. If it's not an aarch64 system, you'll also need <tt>qemu-user-static</tt>. First, get [https://overviewer.org/~pillow/up/e96363af01/linux-aarch64-rc-5.16.rc4-1-aarch64.pkg.tar.zst the linux-aarch64-rc package I patched and built], then copy it somewhere into your mounted root.
