| Oh, activation through USB. I see. That's treated as non-interactive,

| Same thing here. You never got into the boot menu without AUX.

| Seems that the factory u-boot diverged a bit from our mainline ...
| So, how do you guys want to implement that factory-specific behaviour ?
| One possibility would be to add the
| 	enter_bootmenu = 1;
| change to the factory build.
| Or perhaps you'd prefer an environment variable ?
| This would mean that the environment installed during DM1 would have
| to set this variable, and that the variable would have to be removed
| from the environment before the device leaves the factory.

(would've snipped it, but for the record)

| A third possibility would be a well-known position in u-boot that
| can be binary-patched to enable this behaviour. We already do this
| for a few things.

I knew it was bad in there but not THAT bad!  $CREATOR!
