Thanks a lot. 
I used ipipe.git tree and pull all patches for arm and arm64 from branch ipipe-4.1.y and applied all these patches to Linux kernel, and built the kernel.
Then, I boot up the Linux kernel (Linux-4.1.35) successfully.
However, when I compile the Xenomai3 lib with command " make install ", I encountered another issue during compiling:
make[3]: Entering directory '/home/huangcm/xenomai-3/lib/cobalt'
  CC       libcobalt_la-assert_context.lo
assert_context.c:27:33: fatal error: asm/xenomai/syscall.h: No such file or directory

I enter "./include" directory, I don't find this file. How to do this issue?

below is my steps (on my native ls1043a board):
1> clone  git://git.xenomai.org/xenomai-3.git and checkout to branch "next"
2> ./scripts/bootstrap --with-core=cobalt -enable-debug=partial
3> ./configure CFLAGS="-march=armv8-a" LDFLAGS="-march=armv8-a" --with-core=cobalt --enable-smp
4> sudo make install
