I agree; patches 1+2 (providing "bare" u-boot images for
platforms without u-boot in ROM/flash) have been uncontroversial,
so unless somebody explicitly objects, I intend to commit them to
the d-i git during the next days, now that d-i rc1 is out.

In addition, I think we should add Kibi's patch from
