I don't know much about Linux kernel stuff but IIRC the initrd is just
a cpio file, possibly compressed? I guess once you cross-compile the
Linux kernel image and modules the process shouldn't be arch-specific
at all.

Replace with locales-all?

If you own the devices and are able to test, report a bug against the
linux source package asking for whatever Linux kernel config options
are needed to be enabled to get armmp working on the boards.

$ reportbug --source linux

Same applies to u-boot, once support is in mainline and that version
is in Debian report a bug asking for binaries to be generated for the
relevant device.
