We have two things that may need new names:
- the one currently called kboot-stage1. The "stage1" part is good,
but I feel that the "kboot" part will lead to confusion, since
there are too many things that are being called "kboot".
That's the one I suggested we could call "figleaf".
- the one currently called devirginator. Politicial correctness,
aside it also makes sense to give this a new name for GTA03,
since almost the entire process changes, so there's no point in
trying to adapt the existing devirginator. (We can steal a few bits
from it, though.)
This is the one Mike suggested to call "initial flash". (Which
seems descriptive enough to me, and "ini-tial flash" leaves my
tongue in a lot fewer knots than "fac-to-ry ini-tial-i-za-tion".)
