How come? I seem to recall that Nvidia until recently (if they aren't
_still_ doing it) shipped their Tegra K1 and X1 images with aarch64
kernels and armv7hl userspace, which means that this should work
just fine.

So in this case, what gives? Why does running armv5tel in a chroot
not work with aarch64 kernel?
