I have a NetBSD-6 system with a P2020 (evbpcc architecture, but a

be convenient to run the system with an ext2fs root.
Isn't it enought to have small ext2fs (or FAT) partition to put
a kernel (or native bootloader) to be loaded by U-Boot
and have FFS root file system that can be recognized by the kernel?
arc and cobalt (and some evbarm boards) use such strategy.
For the record, we're doing pretty much exactly that on Loongson
hardware as well.
