Me, and shortly.
Having looked further into the hp300 boot the current state of
affairs is hopeless.
AFAICT the 'stand' tree won't cross-build because it build and runs
a mkboot program. The code in mkboot should be in installboot.
Also, since the bootstrap is >8k, there has to be a 'BOOT' partition.
