Basically the only case where you should need the debug board is if you 
manage to brick the device - and need to re-flash u-boot.

It will presumably be possible to send it off to someone for this - even 
if not connected by FIC.

U-boot is basically akin to the BIOS in a PC.
Normal users, or even kernel developers should never need to update it 
more than once or maybe twice.
