Safety critical systems should not fail any time. Or at much as possible.
But other systems can fail and are justed restarted.

Replicable build is very necessary, but it solves only a single kind of problem.

But the Libre-SOC is being built in Linux, and associated software which are
not error free. Even unit tests are run in this very system.

Even the hardware used is a general purpose commodity one.
