I think so. It has a lot of hardware specific bits for enabling clocks, etc
for pci and usb iirc. That's about all there is in there.

How are you extracting it? Does cbfstool list the file? You could add it
as a raw file as a workaround. Alternatively, it's possible to re-make it
into an elf. This is the same problem as any other stage. Once you add it
and pull it out it can't be added back w/ add-stage. It's not loaded like a
stage, and to be honest I can't remember why I chose to use add-stage to
begin with. I have a feeling I didn't want to change anything for
relocatable ramstage in the Makefile so I did it like that. Then just did
