  Description     : Small, portable flash downloader/bootloader for embedded development

Hermit is a bootloader/downloader combination.  It consists of a
target-independent host side utility and a small target loader.  The
host retrieves a memory map, including flash blocking information and
amount of memory available for buffering on the target side, and
programs the flash accordingly.  Hermit supports ethernet downloading,
image compression, downloading to RAM, and a simple serial terminal.

Hermit's design criteria are a lightweight, passive target component and
a featureful, automatable host interface.
