This might be a uboot bug... but not sure. 

Adding some Arm folks.

No, it's a kernel problem, we didn't have a suitable kernel in Beta. It works fine with the nightly from 20180404 but I suggest you wait until the compose that includes the 4.16.0-300 kernel because that fixes a whole bunch of stuff on the 3+, it's on it's way to stable now.
