though, since I had to make a minor change to the flash map in linux to=20=
make the u-boot sectors writable.
Please, nobody attempt to flash the new u-boot until I post again to=20
this list on the topic, when I'll provide instructions for how to do it=20=
more safely under linux, as well as the MD5s
