I took LVM out of the initramfs hooks, and the initrd is down to a
little over 4M:

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 4784700 Jan 27 13:39

So I think that can be done?

If not, is there a reference for the u-boot commands so I can see how to
put together a bootcmd using TFTP? I have also seen instructions for
using USB/FAT, but I'm not sure I am willing to rely on that just yet.

Thanks, Luigi
