I'm posting this to see if anyone, especially from the Linaro
partners, sees a use for a universal ARM bringup image.
This small (<64MB ) flasheable image would contain an FDT enabled
boot loader and kernel. It would contain (at least) drivers for common
UARTs, network chips & USB devices.
This would allow a prototype board to be brought to the stage
where the standard Ubuntu USB installer image could be booted, without
the effort of a full boot loader & kernel port.
Only the device tree for the new platform would need to be
developed initially, allowing the full ports to be developed alongside
the initial debugging of the prototype platform.
