I wanted to report that chromium_47 package from Riku works on my arm64
board, with --disable-seccomp-filter-sandbox (I am going to blame old
kernel for that for a moment, but I also know it might be something more
chromium+aarch64 specific), otherwise it crashes on every page with not
useful stack trace (ending with
[1:1:0426/005802:FATAL:sandbox_seccomp_bpf_linux.cc(145)] Check failed: 1
== (*__errno_location ()) (1 vs. 9)).

I also downloaded source package chromium-browser-50.0.2661.75 from
unstable added manually arm64 to control, and applied few patches by Riku
(from chromium 47 source package), plus minor adjustments, like adding
-D__ARCH_WANT_SYSCALL_NO_AT and few modifications to debian/rules (less
than in Riku patch, basically just adding target_arch=arm64 part).

I used gcc 5.3.1(clang=0 as normal in debian/rules), and after about 14
hours (with DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS=parallel=4), it compiled and linked just
fine. Peak memory usage 1.5GB during final link.
