Unsharing just postpones the problem for another 6 months or so. After
that, the new code will fail as well. Besides that, wasting the whole
boot block is not exactly my idea of efficiency.

Anyone thinking of this should be aware that unsharing will be LOTS of
fun, especially considering global variables, avoiding garbage on serial
and so on. We will need to compile code with different #ifdef sections
based on where it lives and previously shared parts of the code will
look more and more like old ROMCC code.
