It's been done already - there was a thread about building the minimal kernel
and rootfs, and using it to kexec into the one you really want to boot.
Unfortunately that takes up another partition that I just don't have spare due
to the kernel limitation on partitions in mmcblk devices, and android's thirst
for partitions. This could be worked around too, but as I already have a
working uboot setup there doesn't seem much point. I've nothing against Qi,
but in my case uboot is the better tool for the job.
