A few questions about u-boot on this platform:
* Does it support the bootz command?
* Does it support loading from "sensible" (i.e. other than FAT and
raw partitions) filesystems? (possibly via the generic load
* Is /dev/mmcblk1p1 normally mounted (perhaps on /boot) or is it a
dedicated boot partition which is not normally mounted?
Ultimately what I'm getting at is, can this platform use
bootscr.uboot-generic? I'd like to try and default to that wherever
possible for new platforms. (bootscr.omap predates all of the above
facilities being generally available in u-boot AFAIK).
On a separate note, there is no DTB-Id field. Does this mean that the
platform comes with a DTB in the firmware?
