Wifi and boot from SD state on GTA02

U-boot may not be able to boot from an SD card for lack of drivers but if U-boot loads an kernel from internal flash, it shouldn't be any problem for that kernel to boot another kernel from the SD card.

Really, it doesn't take that much to read from an SD card, u-boot + dos fat routines + low level r/w for SD card.  Probably easier to boot another kernel first though.

some months ago it was said that booting from SD card won't be possible
since a lack of drivers. Is this still true?

Another question is about the AR6k wifi driver: Does is support ad-hoc
