My eyes are failing me then ☺.

Can you provide your /proc/cpuinfo then please?

Ok, I got armhf binary running on ARM64, but the only CPU I have access
to has 'CPU implementer' 0x41 and a different set of features. Unsure if
it matters.

So, I'm proposing to start with something more simple - statically
linked binaries.

Get yourself busybox-static package from armhf and armel. Unpack it with
'dpkg -x', see if either of them works.


Here we go (nothing changes):
