Even with 512kb you run a pretty tight ship.  And that's most boards today.

The idea here is to keep the LB-footprint as tiny as possible, and not to 
bloat unnecessarily.  Just think about it for a second:  A multi-tasking, 
multi-threaded  kernel just to kexec.  Wow, talk about bloat.

But, there is another way:  Have LB read the payload in raw from USB.
