Ahh, OK. I missd that at first sight. So you don't use the Freescale
bootlets and do the stuff yourself. That's good because it creats no
additional dependencies.

Can you supply a NetBSD sb-image to me? I'd like to try this with the
mxsldr USB bootstraper.

Yes. Such new things go into -current and are not allowed in a release

Yes, please. I'd like to reproduce your success. :-)

Well. I badly hacked it to mimic a Linux-host to the source. This needs
to be done in a much cleaner fashion. Did you use a Linux binary?

Thats quite a lot. :-)
You have done all the nasty low level stuff (that I don't like ;-)

I sugest this as the next steps:
- You keep hacking on the kernel stuff. :-)
- I'll integrate elftosb2 and mxsldr into the NetBSD source tree.
- When elftosb2 is ready you supply me a patch against -current.
- I'll commit it to the NetBSD CVS repository, if the portmaster has no
  objections. It is very early stuff and unfinished. But I like to get
  it into the official CVS repository early to ensure that nothing gets
  lost and to give others an easy way to contribute.
