No this isn't so regrettably, since it would make a lot more sense than
how it is.

For NAND it uses the kernel in the third NAND partition same as U-Boot
and mounts the sixth partition as rootfs same again as U-Boot would.

We'd need a jffs2 filesystem parser and to wait for the mount action to
complete to get the kernel if we did it the right way, so we do NAND for
GTA02 "the compatible way".
