Somebody in the thread at some point said:
| Dear Xiangfu,
| sounds good!
| I wouldn't worry about being slow at the beginning. Openmoko is big and
| once you spend some time to understand the system, you will become a lot
| faster in the future.
| Andy, are you saying we should not use Kexec/Kboot? Just a reduced u-boot?
| Unfortunately Werner is on vacation so we have to guess what he would say.
| Can you settle on something and give Xiangfu clear direction? Then
| hopefully once Werner is back he will agree with that...
I explained over a month ago that kexec / kboot is not critical for us
compared to bootloader simplification.
1) reduce the bootloader to a minimum and use the fixed worst-case
partitioning offset method instead of dynparts,
2) implement backup kernel and rootfs,
3) figure out if kboot / kexec buys us ANYTHING over what we already
have at that point so we should even bother thinking about it.
