Thanks for the info, i'll watch that topic!
Just one question, why i've saw /dev/sdaz ? I work with storages like
SAN and some of our customer are using linux, considering a multipath
environment (1 LUN 4 path) and a multipathing software the 16 sd* device
limit is easily reached, but i'm sure that i've saw devices
like /dev/sdaz which are teorically impossible to be created reading the
spec file. It was a RHEL, various version with the default kernel and
i'm quite sure that the multipath sw didn't patch anything, so, how is
this possible?

I'm just curious, now i'm working to obtain a fast pseudo second stage
bootloader, like the one posted while ago but i'd like to wipe out X and
leave only a txt interface, if this will work we could make it on the
first partition and boot from qi, no need to have a uboot with a menu,
qi -> linux with boot menu -> distro of your choice
