to get a fast boot time on my mainboard I want to stick a whole kernel-image
into my flashchip.
The idea I want to realize is to have a kernel image in the Flash which has
all drivers for my hardware compiled in.
I don't want to have a busybox environment or an X-server in the flash, but
just the kernel image.
Booting should look as follows:
* Coreboot initialization
* Payload Kernel Image (64bit)
* (sysv)init or upstart from harddrive
* needs to reflash/rebuild the bios every kernel update
What do I need except a kernel image which has all drivers compilled in?
What needs to be done to get this setup working?
