I use an external MMC and it looked fairly instant, and I see U-Boot

1609040 bytes read in 222 ms (6.9 MiB/s)
7448684 bytes read in 765 ms (9.3 MiB/s)

so less than a second :-)

I did notice when I first got the Dreamplug that the supplied U-Boot was
very slow, especially enumerating the USB devices. With the Debian
U-Boot that takes about 3 or 4 seconds, then a second to load the kernel
and initrd.
