Yup, except for the first partition. By the way, since we may
subdivide the kernel partition, we'll probably end up being
incompatible with what's probably the most common use of DFU
anyway. So I'd just recommend not mixing Qi and u-boot.

Oh yes. It's not a question of speed, just of messiness carried
over from u-boot. But if you're willing to add this stuff to Qi,
that eliminates the compatibility problem very nicely.

Cool, one worry less. Now we just need those nice and polished
weekend jobs ;-)
