Given that the LS Pro software doesn't need the 15M parameter (since
it's an initrd), the first choice might be best.
Is the nvram utility included is the LS Pro software environment or is
that only on the Kurobox Pro?
(and upgrades the firmware to a known-good version if necessary,
whilst guaranteeing not to downgrade it).
I thought even the new firmware didn't work with the 15M parameter.
1.01 firmware doesn't pass in the initr* location via the in memory
boot-info data structure
1.10 firmware (and also 1.09, I think) does pass in the initr* location
and also the *correct* size, via the in-memory boot-info data structures
1.01 Firmware with initrd= parameter: initrds work, but initramfs
don't work (junk after initramfs causes rejection, but trailing junk is
ignored for initrd)
1.01 Firmware without initrd= paramter: Neither initrd, nor initramfs
work (kernel isn't given any initr* loc or size info)
1.10 Firmware with initrd= parameter: initrds work, but initramfs
1.10 Firmware without initrd= parameter: Both initrds and initramfs work
I'll have a look into automating the nvram change and flash update....
