There was a bug with grub2 here, but it never made it to GA, of course
with updates-testing enabled by default anyone running pre freeze F-39
got it:

The Jetson (pre Xavier) devices won't boot without the kernel DT, the
DT provided by U-Boot has some issue around the global timer and the
kernel crashes in very early boot. It's something that I've been
meaning to look into but haven't had the time.

2023.07? That's still quite new.

I can reproduce, and I have been looking into it along with the issues
with the RPi4. I have currently 5 or 6 issues on my list including 3
with the RPi, these ones and possibly more. The issues for some reason
which I'm unsure about are proving very difficult to bisect which is
causing me issues around timing but overall I am hoping to get to the
bottom of them all tomorrow and a new official build done, I was
planning on replying on this thread when I have a new package for
