There's also some stuff which can be either in initram or the bootblock.
- Putting it in initram has the benefit of keeping bootblock size down,
but if you have fallback and normal initram, you need the space twice.
- Putting it in the bootblock saves space in case we have two initram
We also may decide to switch to gcc -combine -fwhole-program for the
bootblock. That would probably reduce bootblock size by 20%.
