No.  I put onto microSD.  NetBSD can't handle microSD yet.  U-boot
(boot loader) can handle microSD.

'mmc init', 'fatls mmc 0 ...', 'fatload mmc 0 ...':
These commands access to microSD for U-boot.

Yes, current state.

We can do it (ramdisk ;-).  However, Overo is being developed now.
Please do not forget not to be able to use USB, microSD, LCD, Audio,
and HDMI.

  However, I look like USB is EHCI.  ;-)
