I think there should be a design first - huge chunk of code sounds not
good. Maybe discuss this on tech-kern first?

I could imagine a driver that just is good enough to dd an image to it
for now, and something layered above later to get effective filesystem
support. For the first step, the chunk of code can not realy be huge.
