Umm, there are no such ARM based Linux devices that violate this.
Certainly none using boot loaders I've written.

That machine doesn't get anywhere near Linux until the drives are fully

off its one and only hard drive. Therefore, by definition the drive
must have completed its diagnostics before Linux boots.
