I'm working on that. I just committed the first step: documenting How
It Works Now, since it is so confusing that I wanted to document it
first. I do have a first cut at v3-like startup in v2. My proposed
console.c patch came from that work. I'd still like to see an ack or
nak on that. I recommend an ack. The current 'initialized' variable in
console.c is just a bandaid for broken code.

The documentation is going to take a few more days, then I will use it
to revise my v3-to-v2 work, and you should see patches inside the next
two weeks. But it can be done.

At some point, all targets should have a failover.c, and failover.c
will use cbfs to locate the ROM image (fallback or normal) to run. I
think it can end up being very clean.
