I know what I need to look for. If I can find a spare brain, I won't 
make mistakes like this. I assumed I had to nrv2b the payload myself, 
but Stefan cleverly put it in the makefile. COOL.

I"m booting linux out of flash on the rumba! in 512k ...

I have fixed some minor nits with the implementation that resolve some 
error messages and a compilation failure if printk_debug was enabled. I 
will commit.

i want to fix the larger error of the include of ../lib/nrv2b.c, eeek!

We should not include .c files in the gcc half!
