What Pink does works. I can't throw J. Random

space that makes it hard to squeeze into flash as well. So beoboot
with 2 kernel monte works for a certain interesting subset of cases
but it does not handle the general case.
ok, gotcha. I don't think I would use beoboot for the general flash case,
I think what Andrew Ip set up with kernel+kexec+initrd with some utils is
the right model.
Except possibly for the exotic driver case 512KB is a
FLASH chip to put in both LinuxBIOS and a kernel. You have to work at
it with a 512KB flash chip but it is doable today.
