Using RTEMS on Zynq ultrascale in 32bit mode

we will have access to a Xilinx Zynq ultrascale+ soon.
It has 4xA53 cores. 
If I understand it correctly they are based on AArch64 which is currently not supported by RTEMS.
However, running the processors in 32bit mode would be sufficient.
I have some problems determining what is already present in RTEMS for a BSP.
Has by any chance someone already done that?
I only started to look at the RM of the SoC and try to determine which core devices have changes and need new/updated drivers in the shared arm directory.
Any guidance would be greatly appreciated. Is it the right idea to start with the A9-based BSPs and go from there?

Best regards,
