No, boot.atari is common among sd and wd.
The difference of them (BIOS setup?) seems handled by
the primary sdboot and wdboot, but they don't use
stand alone libraries so there is no binary change on them.
The newer boot.atari is smaller because the previous MD libsa
uses m68k optimized (and a bit larger) asm string functions
(memcpy, strlen etc.) in src/common/lib/libc/arch/m68k/string
and MI libsa uses simple and size-optimized C versions in
src/common/lib/libc/string, I guess.
