At one point there was basic support for 64bit big-endian e5500 and e6500 in GOlang but it was completely removed in the last year (I've still got to check if gccgo support is functional Crosscompiling go with C library on powerpc64 – dutkowski.me  ).  This pretty much means no use of any newer Linux container management tools. Or for that matter any GO based applications/libs.  Is there any internal NXP support for bringing back GOlang support for the QoriQ arch's?   Looks like a POWER8 standard is now the minimum for 64bit big-endian(all: require POWER8 support for ppc64, to match ppc64le · Issue #19074 · golang/go · GitHub ).
