Debugging Bare-metal applications on Arria10 Virtual Platform

The general specs for the Arria 10 Virtual Platform suggest that it is possible to debug bare-metal applications using the simulator. However, The Virtual Platform user manual and all the examples I see only describe linux platform debugging with a dgb server. Are their tutorials or examples of how to configure and use the VP with ARM DS-5 to run and debug a bare metal application?

By way of context. my primary interest is in debugging custom features in UBoot.
