[fedora-arm] Support for Radxa Rock Pi 4 NVMe SSD?

I'm still doing various test for my Fedora Server documentation about usage of SBC [1] and a scheduled Fedora Magazine article about Fedora Server and Arm SBC.

After some difficulties regarding Odroid and Banana Pi I now got hold of an Radxa Rock Pi 4 to explore and test an alternative hardware to Raspberry Pi 4

During first start, after the grub menu was displayed the monitor lost connection and showed nothing. But the device bootet correctly and I had access over network. After an update the monitor worked correctly anything else I tried was fine.

When I connected a NVMe SSD it didn't boot anymore. I had to re-flash the SD card and start over. It worked than but didn't show the NVMe.

When I tried an Ubuntu image as delivered by Radxa the NMMe worked fine (with the Radxa provided uboot). So the hardware setup is OK. I tried Armbian (using mainline uboot as it states) and it worked fine with NVMe.

Is there a way to access NVMe in Fedora?

And if it is, is there a way to flash the SPI with fedora so I can boot from NVMe? There seems to be some provision for this, but I can't figure out the details.
