Flash flashout is probably different. That's hard-coded so far and
needs some code to auto-detect it.

Ugh. Why don't you just get a device which has USB, such as the
WGT634U or the Asus WL-500g?

Actually, if you just want to run Debian via NFS, it's pretty trivial.
Simply build a kernel with the BCM patches applied, build in NFS
root support and a proper kernel cmdline and flash it...

Setting stuff from nvram isn't really the way Debian works.
Yeah, I think you can do all of that with a kernel with the BCM
patches plus a custom initramfs that you develop that does all of this
My approach is quite different, however. I'll add support to
debian-installer so you can do a normal installation to a USB device.
Obviously, that won't help in your case.
