Thanks!  It seems to work:

(On desktop)
$ wget http://freevec.org/packages/efikamx-armhf.img.xz
$ unxz efikamx-armhf.img.xz
$ file efikamx-armhf.img
efikamx-armhf.img: x86 boot sector; partition 1: ID=0x83, starthead 1, startsector 62, 245458 sectors; partition 2: ID=0x83, starthead 0, startsector 245520, 3584592 sectors
$ dd if=efikamx-armhf.img of=efikamx-armhf.p2 bs=512 skip=245520 count=3584592

(On dev board, using existing Ubuntu system)
# fdisk /dev/sda
(create partition 2 of size 3584592 sectors)
# cat /mnt/nfs/path/to/efikamx-armhf.p2 > /dev/sda2
# reboot

(In U-Boot, change kernel command line to include root=/dev/sda2)

Debian GNU/Linux wheezy/sid efikamx-armhf.lan ttymxc0

efikamx-armhf.lan login: root
Password: ???

Login incorrect

OK, so I guess I can fix that....

Cheers,  Phil.
