I got it, it was just a bit further down in my mails :)

Oh, I didn't mean to ignore it, sorry. What I'm suggesting is to have
a single NOR partition, and figure out how exactly to use it later.

Hmm, let me do a bit of research into making our root file system
a bit quicker to access. I would be surprised if we were the only
ones who are having a hard time with "mount" talking forever. It's
just that we never actually looked for better solutions once we
had the basic functionality in place.

I'll try that, yes. I've filed it one under "really scary things
Andy has dug up" ;-)
