Why is there a lost+found dir in what is meant to be /boot, it makes it
look like it is a filesystem all of its own and we're looking at / in that.

Qi is adaptive, you can use the same VFAT + EXT3 <=== has to be EXT3 for
the Qi binaries until now, it will skip the VFAT partition and load up
from the next EXT3 one.
